Woodhouse disappointed but proud after Cup Final defeat to Hull City

Bridlington Town fell just short of lifting their fourth consecutive East Riding County Cup trophy, as they lost 2-1 to Hull City.

A superb crowd of 356 saw Max Sheaf (23 minutes) put Hull City into the lead with a well taken goal. Chris Jenkinson equalised for Bridlington three minutes laters. But on the half-hour mar, Keane Lewis-Potter sealed the win for City.

Woodhouse “Obviously disappointed with the result, but we played really well especially second half when we created some great opportunities and if it wasn’t for an excellent goalkeeping performance we would of won. The lads gave absolutely everything and can hold their heads up high, I’m really proud of them.

“Congratulations to Hull City who showed some real quality on the ball and the two goals they scored were both moments of magic and playing against sides like us that play completely different to what they are use and all our lads are fully grown men which again they won’t be use to, but it will be valuable experience for them and hopefully help them develop into professional footballers in the future.

“We rest up now and recharge the batteries for next season. I’d like to place on record my thanks to all the lads for the effort and commitment over the season in really testing times but they have been a credit and finally we have some solid foundations to build from for next season where I’m hoping to add some real quality to the squad.”
