Fey hails "perfect start" for Robins

First published in Sport by

BRIDGWATER Town manager Richard Fey described Saturday’s opening day humbling of Bashley as “the perfect start” as his side cruised to an emphatic 4-0 victory at Fairfax Park.

Fey was full of praise for his new-look side, which included seven debutants.

They dominated the former Southern premier side throughout the 90 minutes in what the manager labelled a “faultless” display.

He said: “I really didn’t know what to expect from the game because we had seven players making their debut against a side looking to bounce straight back from last season’s relegation.

“But, from the kick-off, we were outstanding and I can’t fault what we did.

“We were known as long ball merchants last season, but we’ve changed that now and we’re trying to get the ball down and play – and we totally dominated for 90 minutes; we were faultless.

“The only negative was that we didn’t score more goals.

“Young Ollie Chamberlain was outstanding for us in the new role we have given him – he didn’t score but set up two of the goals.

“The crowd were great and made a lot of noise and, hopefully, we can get a much bigger turnout at our next home game against Shortwood.”

The Robins travel to Evesham this Saturday, August 16, before a trip to Tiverton next Tuesday night, August 19.
