We’re not sure who tweets the goal updates at Bridlington Town’s games, but we hope that the blisters on his or her fingers heal quickly after the Seasiders 10-0 win over Liversedge in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division clash at the Neil Hudgell Solicitors Stadium yesterday afternoon, a result which sees Bridlington in fourth and ‘sedge in eighteenth-and, as we’ve come to expect, Seasiders’ manager Brett Agnew wasn’t getting ahead of himself, writes Colin Muncie.
Bridlington scored five times in each half , with a hat trick from Joe McFadyen (15, 26 and 72 minutes) grabbing the limelight; seven other home players made it on to the score sheet, watched by a crowd of 163 who had run out of fingers by the time Benjamin Clappison scored the tenth after 89 minutes.
Brett was as happy with his side’s work rate as he was with their finishing.”Obviously I’m delighted with the final result but for me as long as we win it doesn’t matter if it’s one or ten” he told us.”The performance from everyone was top drawer, and the desire to keep a clean sheet was outstanding. I’m happy for Danny Norton to get his goal (80 minutes) as he was trying so hard to get into those scoring positions. Happy for Joe to get a hat trick and Chris (Adams, 73 minutes) to get a goal as they worked their socks off all day”.
“For me though we don’t get too carried away” Brett insisted. “We just keep grounded and play the way we can and the results will keep coming”.
“Big thanks to (Bridlington Chairman) Pete Smurthwaite in backing me to get players in and other things which help me and Anthony (Bowsley, Assistant)”.
