A four-goal first half saw Bridlington Town move back into eighth in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division with a 4-1 away win over Albion Sports last night-and Seasiders Manager Curtis Woodhouse admitted that he and his players enjoyed the convincing win almost as much as the Lions near-legendary post-match hospitality, writes Colin Muncie.
A Jake Day hat trick, taking his season’s tally to a fine 43, and one from Andy Norfolk put Bridlington firmly in the driving seat by half-time, and although the hosts pulled one back in the second period the damage had already been done. Curtis told the Bootiful Game “In that first half we played very well for thirty minutes looked really dangerous going forward and scored four good goals -and could have had a couple more. In the second half, it was difficult to keep the same intensity and drive as, realistically, the game was over. Credit to Albion -they came into it more and caused us a few problems but we kept a good shape and managed the game well. The lads were a credit to the football club tonight making the long trip and not only putting a good display on but also working tirelessly for the cause.”
And so, having devoured the three points, the victorious visitors tucked into the always-excellent after-game fare. “After the game I did feel a little bit embarrassed leaving without having to pay for the excellent curry we got treated to; some of our lads went off like they had never been fed -but in their defence it was top class!”
“Onto Saturday we go for our final game of the season”.
