Manager Unhappy With Poor Performance

September 3, 2017

Alnwick Town manager Richie Mitchell has had his say following his sides 3-0 defeat to Esh Winning on Saturday.

"I can't explain that performance at all. From the kick off to final whistle we were out fought and it's not acceptable. The lads have been fantastic but we can't let our standards drop and Saturday wasn't what this squad is about."

"I have a good squad here and we have our own targets internally and those won't be met if we are as pathetic as we were for the vast majority of Saturday. We now facesome very difficult games and I want to see the character and reaction from the players."

"We move on, it's gone now and focus on the next games, including the difficult FA Vase game. We also have 5 or 6 players coming back to make decision difficult in terms of squads this week."
