Bridlington Town v Glasshoughton Welfare

The views of Bridlington Town boss Mitch Cook after the 1-1 draw with Glasshoughton Welfare

“WE HAVE got to win ugly sometimes, it can’t be 6-0 or 7-0 every week.

“Glasshoughton came and made their intentions clear straight away. We had the ball for the first two minutes and they never came to get it

“That was how they approached things and we needed to score early.

“When we didn’t, we had to make sure that we didn’t do anything silly when we did get in front. We weren’t naive but their goal was a culmination of mistakes.

“We had suspensions and had lost Carl Stewart, and Billy Logan is working on Saturdays throughout January, but the 11 we put out were capable of winning any match, so that is not an excuse.

“We needed to find another way of scoring. It can’t always be the perfect goal and we should have gone more direct with a ball over the top for Josh Greening.

“Our new signing Ben Silburn has been a regular for East Riding under 18s and he was signedfor Hall Road.

“I said to him that learning the game, he would be better in a side that was winning more often than getting beaten heavily.

“He is a great little prospect but he is probably two or three years away from being the finished article.

“We are obviously on the lookout for more players. We needed the younger local lads to come along on Saturday but they weren’t interested.

“Mike Jones said he wanted to get 90 minutes in for Hessle.

“It is very sad news about Ken Knight, it all seems to have happened so suddenly.

“He was only on the bench with us against Parkgate two weeks ago.

“He was part of the dressing room furniture and all our thoughts are with Betty and Roger.”
