If Bottesford Town’s Head of Media Operations Howard Pirie had the club ghetto-blaster set to “pause” on the journey home from the Poachers’ FA Cup reverse at the weekend, he must have had his “MC Hammered” Play -list cranked to maximum volume as he and the hard-core BBA headed home with three points after a fine win at seventh-placed Liversedge at the Clayborn Ground last night- and Howard interrupted his weekly makover to credit a depleted Bottesford squad on a super three point haul, writes Colin Muncie.
The visitors were two up at the interval thanks to Jack Bowskin ( 26 minutes) and Henry Cook ( 44 ); and although Sedge’s talisman Joe Walton hit back for the home side on 80 minutes, Bottesford took maximum points back to Ontario Road. A crowd of 102 saw the game.
Howard was quick to underline the contrast between last night and the weekend. ” Well ,what a difference four days makes in football” Howard admitted to the Bootiful Game “On Saturday we went to Witton Albion in high spirits hoping to create a Cup shock- and were sent home with our tails between our legs.Skip forward to Tuesday and a tricky away fixture against Liversedge ,with six first teamers unavailable or injured -and we come away with a 2-1 win. Much credit to the lads who stepped up to the plate, it will stand them in good stead for future games. Well done to Jack Bowskin for scoring a “worldie” and Henri Cook for the second goal. The travelling seven were over the moon”.
“So the rollercoaster that is Bottesford rolls on to Saturday and a FA Vase fixture against Pinxton” Howard added.
“It’s enough to make your hair fall out”.
