Yorkshire Amateur retained the top spot in the Premier Division after thumping Bottesford Town 4-0 at The Southerns Stadium, writes Ian Robinson, and Manager Neil Sibson couldn’t hide his delight.
“It was fantastic today, everybody tuned in to the instructions given.
We got turned over in the first game of the season at their place, and as I said earlier, we learnt a hell of a lot from that one game which may have been a blessing in disguise!”
Neil had clearly done his homework when it came to the opposition’s strengths, adding “Botty came at us with a high press just as they did in the first game, so it was up to us to work that out which we did to great effect.”
The Ammers are of course renowned for their attacking capabilities, but Neil thought his defenders were worthy of praise today, saying “Our defence was also outstanding, with lads putting their bodies on the line which is what we spoke about pre match.They have a handful of a striker with McMenemy in their ranks but the lads kept him quiet.”
There was also a word for top scorer Ash Flynn who added two more goals to his tally, “We also have a good striker in our ranks who started and finished the scoring today with a brace.”
Concluding the interview, Neil summed up the day well saying “Botty are a very good side but today we fully deserved the win. We will now move on to Tuesday when we have another tough game as we welcome Bridlington, and we will hopefully build on today’s excellent performance.”
