‘No complaints with the result’ – Smith

MARTY Smith insists the Bannsiders were left disappointed by their performance as they were eliminated from the North-West Cup last night…

After Andy Mitchell cancelled out John Butcher’s opening goal for the visitors, Paul Owens’ side would take the lead through Matty Walker’s header before sealing the deal soon after as Ryan Doherty’s thunderbolt sailed into the top corner.

Smith alluded to the fact that he would have liked the Stripes to progress to allow more U20 players to get game time playing senior football, however, he had no complaints with the final score.

The 20’s manager also commented on his side’s progress to date and spoke of his determination at getting as many players through to playing senior football as possible.
