McGuire disappointed not to take home all 3 points

Thackley twice came from behind on Saturday in an entertaining 2-2 draw with Bottesford Town – but manager Patrick McGuire was upset his side didn’t take all three points.

“As the home side we’re disappointed to not take all 3 points as both goals were avoidable. However, Bottesford will feel the same and the game could have gone either way in what was a great game of football, particularly the second half.”

“We may go grey in the dugout but it’s good value for money at Dennyfield. We were way below standards first half and lacked any intensity or tempo to our play. After a few strong words at half time the lads began to show the bravery on the ball and produce the entertaining football they’re capable of. We’re trying to implement exciting attacking football for the fans, and to see our left back cross it and our right back finish it off is fantastic – we just need that endeavour from the start, consistently!”

“This year we’ve prided ourselves on the youth that have been given chances and 17-year old Asa Mitchell was a stand out player today, who was very unlucky not to win the game late on with his effort hitting the post.”

“From our point of view it’s another point against a very good side, but we have to turn these draws into wins, which I’m sure we will do soon.”
