The views of Bridlington Town boss Gary Allanson

“But we were magnificent against Farsley, that’s football unfortunately.

“Over the last three years we have created a philosophy of high-tempo passing, entertaining football and we have had some very special games to put in the memory bank.

“Hopefully the fans will remember those as positives rather than pick on the negatives which is the easiest thing to do.

“To put it into context we are actually third in the league and have gone unbeaten in our last 10 games and in our last six games we have only conceded two goals.

“Unfortunately our goals have dried up in the last three or four games but we all know that and we will try and bounce back for the rest of the season.

“It doesn’t help when teams pack the midfield and only play one up front but we have to try and combat that.

“Teams won’t just come and lay down and get battered.

“We didn’t seem to have the ideas or creativeness to do that in the last two games but these teams playing against Bridlington Town it is their cup final and both the teams were celebrating after the games for getting 0-0 draws.

“We will do our best to finish the season as high as possible and to bring some silverware to Queensgate.

“I trust and respect the players we have and they will work their socks off to try and achieve this, but I won’t be doing that by shouting and screaming from the touchline.

“All my talking is done in the dressing room and that’s where it stays.

“I apologise to some supporters for not showing passion in ‘public’ but believe me there is nobody more passionate in the dressing room and I would like to believe that’s why the club has been successful in the last three years.

“We are not making excuses for this season but from our own high standards we set ourselves we have not reached them often enough.

“Being really honest with the turnover of players we have had and the players we have missing through injury we have over-achieved.

“There will definitely be changes next season and hopefully it will give the club the opportunity to move forward again with a fresh impetus.”
