Wednesday 21st August 2019

CROWBOROUGH ATHLETIC chairman Clive Maynard has issued an apology after his club suffered a humiliating 8-0 home defeat by Bearsted last night.

Sean Muggeridge’s side are in the bottom six in the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division table, having collected three points from their opening three games.

But after suffering a heavy defeat to Bearsted, Mr Maynard issued a statement today to apologise for the disastrous result.

“On behalf of the club, I would like to personally apologise for last night’s disastrous result,” Mr Maynard told www.crowboroughathletic.com.

“It was a result that was difficult to stomach for everyone at the club.

“When such things occur it is time for reflective consideration not knee jerk reaction. It is now time to regroup, rethink as appropriate and work harder to ensure that a similar event doesn’t happen again.

“If there is a bright side, it is the fact that, we have two games coming up quickly so with hard work, application and a modicum of luck we will take the opportunity to put right the wrongs of last night.

“With the passing weeks hopefully we can consign the events of yesterday to memory and recognise it for what it was, a dreadful day at the office.

“Our club motto is “Together we Achieve” and only if everyone at the club is together can we achieve.”

The Crows return to action with a home game against their local rivals Tunbridge Wells on Bank Holiday Monday, 26 August (15:00).
