Peters: “We Were A Joy To Watch”

Bacup Borough boss Brent Peters was understandably delighted after Saturday’s excellent win over Runcorn Linnets:

“The entire team produced football of the highest quality for ninety minutes against a very good Runcorn side. The entertainment value and the quality of football was 10/10 a sheer joy to watch, we played at a tempo that Runcorn could not get near and with this they were never going to get a foothold in the game. It was no surprise that the opposition changed their shape following the break, such was the determination and concentration of the Bacup players. Not many, if any team would have lived with us on such a performance. Runcorn are a good team with a good following and a very good young Management Team of which both myself and Andy Hill have the utmost respect on how they go about their business. I realise their magnificent supporters were frustrated how things were turning out but I do think it was unfair that an isolated shout was aimed at their Management, not many teams would have competed with us when we played at the tempo we did and the clinical finishing produced by slick passing moves as we did today. It was not that Runcorn were bad, it was Bacup that were excellent. I must single out young Joe Edwards and Shane Birtles playing a role that demands high energy, both players were still doing the same going into the 90th minute as they were in the first minute, both were critical in being options which complimented our excellent midfield in order to create the scoring opportunities we did. Haydn Paul for the second game running came in for a tough time against some robust defenders but once again he came through the game with his head held high as he stood up to this and with it came out with good plaudits and fully deserved”. Peters concluded” when we play with the tempo we did, when we play as a team as we did, then in my opinion no one in our league will live with us. Runcorn going into this game had an excellent record in their previous games, they were very much the form team but such was our comprehensive display on the day they were made to look very ordinary, both myself and Andy Hill were proud of each and everyone of them”
