Prudhoe Town (a) Northumberland Senior Cup
33mins: Doninger penalty 1-0
Interim Coach Richard Money commented:
“It has to be with the right attitude, the right energy and the right tempo.
“We also looked like we were dangerous, which is the pleasing thing for me.
“And I thought we saw that at
Prudhoe. We have taken another step forward. We are trying to play
properly and one or two of them or doing OK.
“We’ve concentrated on that a lot at the moment and we are showing progress.
“We just want to play games. If you are in the competition you might as well try to win it. All you want to see is them doing it properly. We had three first-year professionals in the back line and that’s encouraging.
“But the pleasing thing is that they are looking like they enjoy the way we play.”
