Managers Reaction: Proud Of What The Boys Have Given.

Following Saturdays Draw With St Helens I spoke with the Bacup Borough Manager Brent Peters who had this to say

“  I am so proud of what the boys have given me in this opening week of the season, we may not have recorded our first win yet but one thing is a stone wall certainty and cannot be taken away from us is the plaudits that have been coming our way from our opponents and followers of Non League by just how well we have played and how well organised we have looked  in our opening games, Peters added “ we have just completed two difficult games in the space of forty five hours, games that have both been competitive and played at a terrific pace, with this we have produced some absolute outstanding football, so much so I was honoured to having received an e-mail on Saturday evening from a neutral football follower that he was so impressed with our football he did take the time to let me know, and in his words, he felt that we had produced football at times which was better than he had witnessed in a lot of higher graded teams, Peters said “ I cant disagree with the gentleman’s comments, it was a sheer joy to watch but we must be more clinical and really hurt teams whilst we are on top, otherwise what can happen is what happened in injury time against St Helens where by the ball spins off my defenders foot taking the ball cruelly past our keeper from a situation he did seem to have covered, this resulting in St Helens recovering one point from a second half we completely did dominate, Peters added “ it was a good team performance but I do think within this team performance I must mention Michael Gervin, Anthony Hall and Josh Walne and Matty Dell to whom combined terrifically through out creating many openings, but equally I must say in order to strive for excellence and achieve this we must start at the back and be hard to beat in ensuring the opposition chances are limited, this is another area I do feel we are achieving this based upon our opening three games having conceded three goals, one an own goal which was unfortunate, the other two goals could easily have been prevented but considering last season defensively our record was not the best, the signs this time around we most certainly do look a solid unit with the Leadership of experienced pairing of Laquan Esdaille and Adrian Bellamy to whom are playing their part with the development of young Oliver Crewe, Peters finished by saying “ we are very much work in progress, there is a long way to go but the early signs following a positive Pre -Season are very good,  keep playing like we are and the boys keep believing in the terrific talent they do possess, then it will not be long before the last two draws do become wins “
