Striker Richard Brodie made his 500th appearances as he played for Skelmersdale United but he says the loss the team had meant it ended on a sour note writes Tom Feaheny.
Brodie who has played for the likes of York City, Crawley Town and Southport was involved in the 2-0 loss against Hyde United and despite being named man of the match he admitted he wanted it to have gone better.
Speaking to the club’s website he said:
“It’s a great milestone to reach, not many have done that with so many being at the top tier of Non-League football, I pride myself in winning games rather than an individual performance.
“It is nice to have won the man of the match, it shows I did okay but for me the aim has to be three points as a team rather than anything for myself.”
Reflecting on the loss Brodie said.
“I think we were a bit short football wise, they are a good team, we know that, but we just were lacking something in the game, we have to rectify that.”
When looking at the game against Clitheroe coming up, Brodie says three points is all that matters now.
“We need to win that, the performance goes out of the window, whether it is by hook or by crook, we don’t care just get the win is the message for us all.”
