It certainly was a night to forget for FC Bolsover as they were, to put it nicely, given a bit of a lesson away at Eccleshill – losing 9-0.
However, the third from bottom side did manage to keep out The Eagles for the first twenty-five minutes, but then the flood gates opened.
Luke Harrop bagged four first half goals (27, 36, 39, 44), captain Sam Bradley netted just before the break, whilst Antony Brown scored a hat-trick (50, 60, 72) whilst Matthew Mathers netted on 70 minutes.
“Not want to make excuses about last night but we had the two hour drive to Bradford with seven players missing and a bare eleven players with four players injured. We don’t have a big squad so we went with what we got in the last twenty minutes we had people who couldn’t even run so getting the game on for us was a massive achievement.
“I am proud of the lads that came up and dug in whatever the result. In the first twenty-five minutes we were the better side and could of gone two or three up but don’t take it away they are very good side.
“But we hope results go are way and if we need to beat Selby we will give it all we have to get a result. We did our best and proud of the lads what ever happens.”
