Scott Phillips v Pickering Town

The views of Bridlington Town boss Gary Allanson

“THE Hall Road game was very difficult, played in awful conditions and was totally opposite of the Pickering game.

“It was a potential banana skin because of all the connections between the clubs but I felt we showed another side to our game and battled and fought really well.

“They had some very experienced players with four playing UniBond Premier at the beginning of this season, but we managed to change things around slightly and it worked really well which is the beauty of having a really good squad.

“Unfortunately you can’t keep everybody happy and another player has gone to pastures new with Jace Moody moving to Hall Road.

“Jace showed a fantastic attitude who never missed training and because of that we waived the seven days so he could play on the Saturday.

“He is at an age where he wants to play regularly and maybe because of the system we play and the form of Danny Brunton his chances were limited, but good luck to him and hopefully we will see him back at the club in the future. “Gareth Owen has done really well in his games so far and is certainly pushing for a start.

“He has an eye for goal and causing defences so much trouble with his direct running he is a great prospect for the future and he shows a great attitude and listens and wants to improve.

“Craig Hogg has found his scoring boots again and his body language has totally changed and his confidence is sky high again so long may that continue.

“Unfortunately the game was off on Saturday but we managed to get a training session in to keep us ticking over, it was a very high tempo session with great commitment shown by most of the players.

“We have received seven days for Nick McNamara from Scarborough which is really disappointing the way Nick has gone about this, but I hope it works out for him.

“We travel to Liversedge on Saturday which is always a difficult place to go to try and get a win to keep the pressure on the teams above us.”
