Gill pleased to get the monkey off his back with 1st points of the season!

After last night’s late away win over Harrogate Railway Athletic, Hall Road Rangers Manager Bill Gill admitted that he was pleased to get a win under his belt in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division-and attributed the three points to his side’s industry during the ninety minutes, writes Colin Muncie.

Bill told the Bootiful Game” It was a relief last night securing our first points of the season. If you don’t get some on the board early it has a psychological effect on performances -and the oppositions’ approach- ahead of games. The injury to James Whittingham forced an early change which also affected our game plan and players due to feature off the bench; so naturally there was some disappointment from those not getting a run and those that I had to pull off. I don’t mind players feeling that way though- it shows they care”.

“ Our hard work was what stood out last night; we looked like we wanted to win the game and we got our rewards. It could have easily been 3 or 4-1 in the end. We just need to be more direct and ruthless in the final third.

We look forward to Goole now on Saturday at Howarth and hopefully welcome a few players back that we have placed with other teams for midweek game time.”
