A crowd of 75 spectators witnessed a thumping 5-nil win for NCEL Division One league leaders Grimsby Borough at home against Worsbrough Bridge Athletic.
Striker Daniel Trott netted three on a fine afternoon for The Wilderness Boys as Lee Morris’ found the tough forward unplayable. James Petronzio added a diving header just before the break while new boy Lewis Bemrose rounded off the resounding win.
Joint Borough Manager was delighted with his sides application, “Very good performance from ourselves. We worked hard and got the result we needed. We now go into a Cup Final (On Wednesday in the Lincs Senior Trophy Final) which is a free game and a chance to get some game time into some of the lads that haven’t had much lately.”
“+5 goals and a clean sheet is just what we needed after a break.”
Worsbrough boss Morris and his Assistant where visably aggrieved with the official at half-time due to some inconsistencies thoroughout the first-half, but both their post match comments agreed just how good Borough were.
“Today was a step too far for us,” Morris commented. “We have had an amazing season, no matter what happens now, but today we met a team that was way above where we are at the moment.”
“I am man enough to say, I have to look at myself as a Manager rather than the players. Today we have played a lot of football in a short space of time and I probably should have freshened things up, but lads did that well on Tuesday I wanted to stick with that.”
“This is taking nothing away from Grimsby, they were at different level today and I wish them all the best in the title race.”
While his Assistant David Taylor added, “we were beaten by the better team. Both Lee and I don’t feel that was a true representation of the team that has got us to 6th place come mid March. We highlight consistency and that’s what we are missing. Ability wise we have it. Work rate is never in question, but we need to find a way to mix both on a consistent basis.”
“Credit to Grimsby; because they pressed us right until the end and the number 10 for them was absolutely terrific. On the other side of things, if somebody said Worsbrough would be 6th in mid March, folk would have laughed – after all we were tipped to finish bottom.”
“We can learn from Grimsby in certain aspects and the group need to keep believing in themselves, because they are good footballers. We will strive to put this result right and we are confident we will do so.”
