Bridgy’s bad luck continues (16/10/12)

| 11/04/2013

Bridgwater and Albion head coach Kevin Innalls cant quite believe the run of bad luck that his side has suffered this season.

Reflecting on the match Kevin said: “For the first time this season I felt that we were well and truly beaten on Saturday by Oldfield Old Boys.”

“We seem to be so unlucky in this league, and it just beggars belief, but when you are down it seems to go like that.”

“Two weeks ago Oldfield Old Boys couldn’t raise a team and Cullompton got the five points and last week Petherton played them. This week they brought in new Bath University players along with their own physio as well and they were just too good for us.”

“The same sort of thing happened when we went to Sidmouth.The previous week they were missing a number of their guys on a sponsored cycle ride, but when we played them they were all back.”

Regarding Oldfield Old Boys Kevin said: “Looking at their results and league position we prepared well and had some good training sessions and went there expecting to do well, but against the quality of players that they brought in we were a long way off. They were just too good for us.”

Kevin is constantly on the look out for new players as he explained: “We have signed a new prop who is currently away visiting his family and we are constantly talking to new players, and working hard to try to attract new players to the Club to boost the squad, but it’s not easy now the season is underway.”

“Rob Allen is on the road to recovery and is back jogging which is a good things so we are hoping that it won’t be too long before he is back with us.The Seconds had a good win on Saturday so we will be having a close look at some of them with a view to giving them a chance in the first team.”

“What we have to do is to keep our heads down, keep on working hard and eventually our luck will change and we will come out the other side. We need to win a few games which will make all the difference because it will give the side a bit of confidence.”

Looking ahead to Saturday the head coach said: “Thornbury will be another tough side for us to play. In fact we are finding that in this league there are no easy games.”
