We Have Been Far Better Admits Beadle


After today's FA Vase final, Hereford manager Pete Beadle spoke about the game, and the season, in the press conference:

"We’ve been through a lot this year and there’s lots of things we’ve talked about," said Beadle.

"We talked just after we won the league and one of the bugbears of mine is that we haven’t been clinical enough in killing teams off.

"A lot of the games this season we’ve always been one up or found ourselves one down and we’ve always let teams back into the game, and we’ve done the same today.

"It was tough today because it was a set piece and we’ve had problems with them all season. 

"It wasn’t them (Morpeth), it was us; the keeper didn’t quite get his timing right and it happens.

"We huffed and puffed in the second half but we weren’t good enough, the players know that.

"It hurts more because we haven’t shown everybody what we’ve achieved all season, as in the way we’ve been playing. We have been far better than that and that’s what it hurts as much as it does."

Was being at Wembley with 20,000 fans and Ronaldo the bull any consolation?

"Without a doubt, it’s put Hereford back on the footballing map, but I’ve got a group of players and staff that wanted to win today.

"Hopefully it won’t be too sombre, the main thing was to get out the league we were in and we achieved that.

"This trip, this weekend building up to the game today was a bonus. But when you turn up, you want to win it.

"To have the support we’ve had this season, my players have certainly put Hereford football back on the map."
