Shirebrook Town boss delighted with 8-1 hammering of Yorkshire Amateur

Shirebrook Town manager Micky Taylor is absolutely delighted with the form his side is showing before the visit of league leaders Pontefract Collieries on Saturday.

This comes on the back of the 8-1 demolition of Yorkshire Amateur last weekend.

Taylor said: “We have lost just one game in 10 and have reached the semi-final in one competition and the quarter-final in another. I feel I now have the squad to push on and climb the league as well.

“The players have bonded and that has shown out on the pitch. The finishing on Saturday was clinical.

“We have continuously been looking for players to perform at this level and a lot of bodies have come through the door and out again. Basically most that have gone just couldn’t cut it at this level and are now playing lower down the pyramid”.

Shirebrook will be without Brendan Sweeney and Grant Hackett on Saturday but will welcome back Pete Stubley, Lewis Jackson and Dale Gibbons to the squad.

Taylor added:“The present players have stuck with the club through the difficulties we have had. This said I never stop looking for quality players and ideally I would like a defender, a central midfielder and another striker to complete what would be my perfect squad”.
