We’ve heard from a frustrated Yorkshire Amateur Joint Manager Neil Sibson following his side’s 4-3 defeat at fifth-placed Barton Town at the Easy Buy yesterday in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division –and Swans’ Manager Dave Ricardo agreed that a red card for Ammers had a significant influence on the game ,which provided superb value for money for the crowd of 130 at Marsh Lane, writes Colin Muncie.
Dave told the Bootiful Game that he was seriously impressed by the visitors. “I said previously that the game would be entertaining and I don’t think either side disappointed on that score! I have to say that’s the best Ammers side I’ve seen over the last twenty years and the best attacking side I’ve seen this season. Because they push so many bodies forward teams will fancy their chances getting joy but the link up play going forward was very good”
Turning his attention to that early sending-off, Dave gave us his take on the key talking points, telling us ”I can understand their frustration with the disallowed goal in the first half as we had the same against Thackley earlier on in the season. The red card was the easiest decision you could see all year; and I think in private the Management team will be frustrated with the challenge as it became a game- changer”.
Dave will look closely at Ammers late fight back and use it as a teaching point for the younger members of his squad.”I was really happy with our lads for 80 minutes: however we will use the last ten as a learning curve ,as we weren’t as professional as we should have been in terms of killing the game off and in game management” he admitted. “Having said that, apart from a couple of players, we are an extremely young side and as a result learning collectively and individually all the time.
“We need to back today’s result up with a result next week at Albion”
