They may not be geographically that close, but Bridlington face a sort of derby day away at Bottesford Town tomorrow and both Brid Manager Brett Agnew and Head of Media Operations Howard Pirie expect a tough afternoon.
“It’s got to that stage in the season where everyone just wants it finished now, but we have a 3rd place to play for.”
“I think Bottesford can be a very dangerous side especially at home as they seem to get all there players playing.”
“At our place they just didn’t turn up and we couldn’t finish our dinner, so I expect it to be a really enjoyable game to watch for the fans.”
“I like Corbs, he is a very good coach and a nice guy as well, so I respect him and his squad; but when the 90 minutes start, it’s do anything to get those 3 points, and put the pressure on the teams around us for that 3rd place.”
Whilst Pirie added, “I am looking forward to our last two homes games; we first welcome the only team in the division with a harbour, might change next year if Grimsby Borough get promoted, but until then its Bridlington.”
“We seem to give our opponents a game, home or away, and hopefully Saturday will be the same – although we both have nothing to play for.”
“More seems to be happening off the pitch than on it at Bottesford; with new catering building well on the way and great news with regards to new floodlights. Chairman Tony Reeve has worked hard over the last couple of years to bring things together, he is a real unsung hero, just need 11 heroes on Saturday with that same drive and determination; and if we have that the result will be a formality, but its Bottesford Town, so who knows what will prevail. BBA are sponsoring the game so they will expect graft, blood and spit, may the best team win.”
