Bridlington Town took a grip on 3rd place in the NCEL Premier Division thanks to a 4-2 win at Athersley Recreation which puts them 4 points clear of nearest rivals Maltby Main, writes Ian Robinson.
Goals from Jake Day, Joe McFadyen and Benn Lewis were added to by Manager Brett Agnew in the last minute, and the boss gave his thoughts to TBG after his goal scoring exploits. “The game was exactly what I thought it was going to be like. Athersley made it very difficult at times and played some nice football of their own. Both of their goals have come from our mistakes, but the first one was a fantastic finish to be fair to the lad.”
“We fought hard and won ugly, like I’ve said before, we can win nice or ugly and not many teams have that capability in this league.”
“It’s 3 more points won and we move on to our last away game of the season at sunny Bottesford next Saturday.”
