You could be forgiven for thinking that Bridlington Town’s Manager, Brett Agnew is making light work of this Management lark – after all, he had a hard act to follow in predecessor, Curtis Woodhouse – but he certainly takes nothing for granted and is always measured in his post and pre-match observations. Today, the Seasiders made the trip to the Bannister Prentice Stadium and came away with a come-from-behind 3-1 win over the ever-dangerous Garforth Town, who drop one place to thirteenth in the Toolstation NCEL Division One Premier Division after today’s keenly-fought encounter; and Brett is already getting his head around Tuesday’s night’s trip to the table toppers, Yorkshire Amateur, writes Colin Muncie.
The Miners hit the front after just fourteen minutes through Shaquille Clark-Adams, but it took Jake Day only sixty seconds to level from the penalty spot, and is was all-square at the break in front of the Cedar Ridge crowd of 86. Into the second half, and Joe McFadyen (59 minutes) and Nathan Modest (67 minutes) clinched a three-point haul for Bridlington.
The Seasiders ‘boss felt that his players had been a little profligate in sight of goal. “I thought today that if we had had just that little bit more composure in the final third it could easily have been 8-1 – but credit to Garforth; they stayed in the game and battled well to make it interesting. The lads showed – again – how far we have come, with their stubbornness to grind a result out when some things aren’t going for us.”
And so on to Leeds. “We move onto another tough game with a well drilled and hungry side in Yorkshire Amateurs,” he said, “I’ll keep the same mentality and our feet grounded going into that one as well.”
