Bridlington Town manager Gary Allanson felt his side looked like scoring every time they attacked in Saturday’s 7-1 win over Brigg Town.

The Seasiders hit five goals before half time and Allanson believes confidence is helping his young squad to reach new heights.

He said: “It was a really good win for us but more importantly was a good performance and we always looked a threat whenever we went forward.

“They have had some really good results recently and seemed to have turned the corner and I think we hit them on a bad day and they hit us on a good day.

“We are full of confidence at the moment and we have got the players playing with a freedom and they are expressing themselves but in the right way. We have lots of pace whenever we break and we are now getting the quality and better decision making.

“It was great to see all the strikers looking to set each other up if they felt their team mate was in a better position and play in an unselfish manner, which shows what a great team spirit we have and all the players are playing for the team and not themselves.”

Alex Knaggs is Town's unsung hero, according to boss Gary Allanson.

Strikers Chris Adams and Joel Sutton both scored twice, but there were a number of contenders for man of the match.

“We have now got a squad of 17 or 18 players to work with and see us through to the rest of the season, said Allanson.

“Every one of them is capable of starting, we have no passengers and we have good competition for places.

“With players leaving recently it opens the door for others and Connar Harman has taken his chance with both hands in the last two games and with Tim Taylor and Tom Fleming playing alongside him, he will only get better with their experience to pass on, as long as he is prepared to listen.

“Alex Knaggs was again very good and is the unsung hero of the team who goes about his job very quietly, but very efficiently. Joel Sutton is hitting form of two seasons ago when he was first with us and looks a real threat and along with Chris Adams and Andy Norfolk we have great pace and creativity going forward.

“Will Waudby looked very good at left back and gave us an extra dimension with his pace and quality going forward. This gives us great momentum and enables us to put enormous pressure on the opposition and it is only a matter of time when they cave in, some teams quicker than others, although we need that ruthless streak to finish teams off.”
