Didcot Coaching Staff Had An Agenda Said Beadle


After last night's behind closed doors game at Didcot, Hereford manager Peter Beadle spoke to Keith Hall.

Hall started the interview by asking whether Beadle had ever played 'in front of anything like that before'.

"No, not before," said Beadle.

"Now the game is done and dusted, in all honesty we shouldn't have been here.

"I think that certainly their coaching staff had an agenda from the first game.

"We've got here tonight and the pitch was attrocious, bordering on dangerous.

"Even right at the end there, I walked a yard onto the pitch and their coach said too big-time to shake hands then even before I'd had a chance to acknowledge it.

"I think there was always an agenda there and I don't think we should have been here tonight.

"Credit to the players, they've gone a goal down early doors but I thought we controlled the game for long periods and it was only a matter of time.

"We never looked in doubt really."

The game ended 2-1 to Hereford as in the original match and Beadle was full of praise for several of his players.

"I think that both (midfielders) are good athletes and get around the pitch well and they break things up.

"Obviously Calvin is enjoying a bit of game time which he hasn't had recently but he just felt his groin at half-time again because he hasn't had the game time so we will take care of him.

"There were good partnerships all over the pitch tonight. I thought Purds and Sinclair did really well out wide and the two centre-halves were strong again tonight so there were good partnerships all over the pitch."
