Beadle's Comments Post Totton

Peter Beadle With Steve Jenkins At Totton This Afternoon
Bulls News spoke to Peter Beadle, the Hereford FC manager after their 2-1 victory over AFC Totton in Hampshire.

On the game.

"It's not very often we dominate a first-half like we did and have as many chances as we did, and come in one-nil down, but it wasn't that bad. The tempo we played at wasn't up to what we expected and that changed drastically from the very first minute of the second-half because it needed to. We should have been three and four up comfortably before they scored, but we seem to have this habit of making it difficult for ourselves.

"Taking into consideration Totton only had one shot, that went right into the stanction which was a hell of a strike, and another which Horsell dropped, and second-half a couple of long-shots, as a performance overall, we've done ok.

"We've set far better standards than that. We needed to be better second-half and we were, which was great. We could have won it by two or three in the end. Away from home, four hours on a hot sweaty bus, on a hot day like it has been today the lads should take credit, especially second-half."

On Chris Parry, who was unavailable.

"Having a problem with the admin side of the club, needs to pull his finger out!, joked Beadle about club secretary Martin Watson, who was standing next to Beadle during the interview. 

"His clearance hasn't come through yet. That was a bit disappointing."

On trialist Joe Phillips from Stourport Swifts.

"Joe has gone back to Stourport. Wasn't quite ready for us just yet. We'll keep an eye on him. Great attitude but not quite ready for us yet."

On potential signings.

"One that's very close to getting over the line. One that didn't materialise. We'll keep looking and keep working. Bench was really strong today. We have Chris Parry and Ryan Green to come back in too. We look strong as a group. Hopefully get one more over the line this weekend and if we do, then we're not far off.

On the Alvechurch FA Cup game.

"Heard the result (Alvechurch beat Haughmond 2-0 to set up a match at Edgar Street on the 20th August), know it'll be a tough game. First game in the FA Cup. Looking forward to the day. Three really important league games before then, and it's important we keep the winning run going."
