A really hard fought game with the Albion on the back foot for a large part of the second half after dominating the first when we could have had more than 1 goal to show. A strong defensive display saw us see out the game and claim all 3 points. Up to 8th and play offs still a possibility. I think the team thinks so, but not sure the supporters do. Rugby on the telly, but a poor gate none the less on a bright, cold winters afternoon.
We didn’t start with much intensity today and coasted through the first half. Second half we didn’t really get going again and we were on the back foot for most of it. River Humphries was the best player on the pitch today by a country mile. A decent result though and a clean sheet was a bonus but the attendance was very poor. Is this the future of non league football?
I thought we were decent first half and could/should have been 2 or 3 up at the break. Second half we didn't get going and somehow hung on for the 3 points. A good 3 points all the same and as always the effort of the players was faultless.
Agree re the crowd but not sure what else can be done that hasn't already been tried. People are more content to sit in the warmth of their homes with sky/bt sports on all day end of. Looking at other clubs attendances in our league today we are certainly not on our own with this problem. We will always have the 200/300 hardcore though with a fantastic stadium and brilliant volunteers. So all isn't too bad. UTA
Overall we were just about worth the win, first half we were all over them and had numerous half chances to go 2-0 up, second half Whitby had much the better of the game but our impressive back 4 held well and Rivers clearance of the line was brilliant and he was my MOM also.
Re the gate it was freezing and a big rugby game on so maybe expected but having great volunteers and a super stadium does not pay the bills unfortunately, We need to still raise funds over and above the gate receipts. UTA
Very difficult to do CJ. A ground share might be the only viable option. We will be lucky to sustain our place in this league in years to come with attendances like yesterday. Highest league position for many years with crowds at their lowest. Really disappointing. UTA
PS - If people would rather stay at home watching egg chasers that says it all. And we got smashed by the Jocks anyway serves them right lol
Yes a ground share is needed tbh its the way to go to utilise our biggest asset, dont want 2012 winsford though ! they can stay in the dog and duck league where they belong with facilities to match and yes they still are THAT just because they are doing OK in the dog and duck cup against teams I have never heard off does not make them any better UTA.
Who else would be looking for a ground share with us? V*cs have no money. No one else within our vicinity anywhere near our level. Both Runcorn clubs sorted. So presumably we would be looking at football league clubs reserve teams ie Crewe, Tranmere etc. I am completely guessing btw and its probably a discussion for the board and not on an open forum. It cant go on as it is though. UTA
