Lads Step Up

Following the Macron Cup Victory Bacup Borough FC Manager Brent Peters had this to say 

“ We spoke to the boys prior to the game basically saying the fact we are up against strong Premier League opposition this would give us some indication of where we are and how far we have come as a group, the pleasing aspect was everything was all positive, as a group we worked hard for each other, individually we did not carry any single player, each and every one individual worked extremely hard and were competitive,  in terms of possession and creativity we always looked a real threat at the top end of the pitch, in terms of defending as a complete unit we were very good, well marshalled by the impressive Laquan Esdaille, and when the back line did get breached our Goal keeper Peter Monteith when called upon did produce some unbelievable saves, Peters added “ you only have to look at their Captain and main striker Carl Grimshaw’s goals record pro ratio of games, it is an unbelievable and creditable amount of goals, so to this end it was always going to be some battle between Carl and my captain Laquan, but like I said to the boys in the changing rooms before the game, that I backed our Captain to come out on top, this he most certainly did and with this deserved getting their man of the match accolade, Peters said “ has a game it was a good game and to be honest nothing to separate the two sides, it really could have gone either way, but to take the lead on 50 minutes and concede on 90+6 minutes was disappointing to us all, it gives more credibility when against a strong side you don’t concede, so to have finished the game nil would have been special for all. Peters then finished by saying “ a massive credit to all the boys that volunteered to step up to take a penalty and a massive well done to Karl Brookes, Ryan Siddle and Laquan Esdaille on converting their spot kicks, but my final mention must be to our keeper Peter Monteith for his performance in the 90+6minutes and then followed by three top penalty saves, all’s well that ends well and it did end well, the boys deserve surmounting credit “
