Manager’s comments on Newton Aycliffe game

It’s fair to say we may have let 2 points slip but when conditions were as bad as they were sometimes you have to just praise the performance of the team and I thought we were excellent after a slow start. We seem to play so much better against the wind and yesterday was no [...]

“A game too far”

Bay manager Marc Nash felt that the midweek game at Guisborough was one too many as his side prepare for their FA Vase tie in Hull at the weekend. "It’s a game too far in my opinion. The schedule we’ve been given has battered us. No free midweeks for players to recover properly. We have [...]

Manager’s views on West Auckland game

The result was a disappointment obviously but the performance was ok. We started brightly and confidently as you'd expect but their early goal was clinical and we were rocked back. Our shape was affecting them and we started to outplay them but we've missed an open goal effectively to go level. It would have been [...]
