A point and up to fifth in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division for Handsworth Parramore after a goalless draw with 14th-placed Liversedge at the Clayborn Ground last night in front of a crowd of 82-and for Parras manager Jas Colliver, it was a good effort and a well deserved outcome for his players, writes Colin Muncie.
Jas told the Bootiful Game “The lads that travelled tonight will do for me; a committed bunch who threw everything at it tonight. I thought we were bang at it in the first half kicking up hill against the wind. I felt with a little bit more quality in the final third we could’ve led at half time. We looked fitter and sharper playing on the front foot, which pleased me. In the second half again our quality was lacking especially around their 18- yard area. The lads gave everything and I can’t ask for anymore than that. It’s our first league clean sheet , they don’t come without everyone being bang at it and I thought that started from our front two”.
Handsworth are making good progress up the table, and Jas wants the trend to continue when Bridlington visit Sandy Lane at the weekend.”Ten points out of a possible twelve -let’s see if we can make it thirteen from a possible fifteen on Saturday” he said.
“If the lads give me that effort on Saturday, I won’t be able to grumble”.
