Manager Talk

4 years ago By Wroxham Insider

Yachtsmen manager David Batch delivers his exclusive match review to the Wroxham website from Saturday's triumph over Haverhill Rovers.

Considering what was riding on the game, I thought the players conducted themselves excellently on Saturday, delivering a really professional performance.


In truth it was a very one sided affair, but when there is only one goal in it, there is always the danger of a mistake or individual excellence from the opposition which can turn the game on its head.

At half time we said the second goal would be important, it would either kill the match or turn it into one, but I must admit I thought we may have got this earlier than we did.

We created some good chances second half, hitting the bar as well as their GK making one great save after some fine play combination play by Daniels and Durrant, but we failed to convert these and numerous others but the players did not get edgy or tetchy in the slightest – they kept on message and kept doing the right things.

Once again we looked really solid defensively too, and Michael Hilton, who was standing in for Scottie who was busy doing a marathon, was rarely troubled.


Thanks must go to Haverhill though, who took the time to wait for the players to exit the pitch and applaud them for winning the league – it was a strange feeling, because we didn’t know for sure at that time that we had done, so hopefully the players and supporters can enjoy the moment a bit more in our last game of the season when we entertain Mildenhall at home in a couple of weeks.
