Twigger ‘Really Disappointed’ After United Put Six Past Walkington

AFC Walkington boss Richard Twigger says he was really disappointed in his sides performance after they slumped to a 6-2 home defeat against South Cave United.

His side, who have not kicked a ball in six weeks found themselves on the wrong end of a drumming from United who arrived at Broadgates with just two wins all season.

Walkington, who are playing top flight football for the first time scored one and conceded three goals in each half on a pitch that made life difficult for both sides.

Speaking after the match Twigger said;

“I am Really disappointed with our showing today. Six weeks without a game did not help and lack of fitness and the sticky pitch contributed to today’s result.”

“I thought South Cave United were sharper, fitter and quicker to the ball than us.”

“Having said that we gifted them half their goals. We have great quality in the team but not enough of them were on their game today.”

Twigger, who took charge in December felt defeat for second time after his debut as manager saw his side beaten by Beverley Town in the local derby.

Despite the defeat, Twigger hopes his side can bounce back by focusing on the future, he added;

“After this result I think the best way is put it behind us and work hard during the week so we start again next Saturday.”

“Everyone, not just me, is really disappointed, but determined to put it right.”

Walkington remain in eighth place in the Humber Premier League as sides around them failed to capitalise on their slip up.

United climb one place thanks to the win and now have buffer between them and the sides at the foot of the table.

Next weekend Walkington are again at home as they welcome North Ferriby Athletic to Broadgates for a match they really need to win.
