The Tigers suffer a defeat on the road against promotion rivals Bridlington Town.

The Seasiders’ new signing Matthew Broadley, who made his debut after joining from Thackley, netted a hat-trick in order to tame the Tigers.

Matt Sykes equalised for the visitors just before the break however, the team in Amber and Black failed to push on and take advantage of possession.

After the game, Captain Jamie Price spoke to us about the Tigers’ performance;

“Well obviously we’re bitterly disappointed as a group and as individuals.

“It’s not nice getting beat. Two mistakes have killed us to be honest which doesn’t help as we were chasing the game all the time.

“We need to put it right. We need to show more collectively”.

Price then went on to speak about what this result means going forward into the next part of the season;

“We’re still in a good position really, not many teams have had bad spells as of yet.

“We still are learning each other and our strengths. We’ve battered around and need to find our consistency. We need to be more positive as a group top to bottom and we need to believe in ourselves. We know we can beat these teams.

“We are currently mid-table and we’ve not peaked yet and not hit the heights that this team has. It’ll take hard work in games and in training, stick together and we’ll get through it. There’s still lots of time left to fix it”.

This was Price’s first game back after suffering injury against Hemsworth Miners Welfare;

“I hate not playing, I want to play every game.

“The lads have been doing well and result have been good without me in there so I don’t want to come back in and make us play bad.

“I felt good in the game and thought I did alright.

“Playing games is where I am happiest. I’m still training, the lads have been supportive and I’m getting back to 100%”.

Price spoke about the ‘never say die’ attitude and hopes to take it into next weeks game against Liversedge FC at Sandy Lane;

“For me, I was just doing my job. I’ve put my body on the line and if they get past Dave then we need to work to do it. It comes as an instinct.

“Everyone has a job to do, it just hit me in the face but I got the higher position. It’s about knowing when to go and when not to as well as covering each other.

“People will make mistakes at this level but it’s about how you rebound and back each other up.

“We need to stick together and work through it as we have really good players.

“So yeah, disappointed with the result, especially against a close rival. We will move onto the next one and not dwell on it too much as it’s Christmas. We’re playing many games in a short space of time which makes Saturday even more important to win.

“We still have a few games in hand so we will need to assess where we are after.

“Stay positive as we still have a chance to go up. Other teams will have a bad run and we’ll have those five/six wins on the bounce soon as we look to catch up”.
