North Ferriby United manager Steve Housham has paid credit to his side despite their relegation from the Vanarama National League writes Tom Feaheny.
The Villagers fate was sealed after a 3-1 defeat away at Barrow. Housham spoke to Phil Withers afterwards and said.
“Of course it’s disappointing but I’ve told the players that I’m proud of everyone of them for their performances this season. We’ve competed well in most games.
“You can always talk about “ifs and buts” over a season. It’s frustrating that we’ve started to score more goals in recent weeks but we’ve also started to concede too many goals.
“The players have developed as individuals and as team over the season. The loss of the experienced players through injury has placed a lot on the shoulders of very young players but they have responded magnificently.”
Ferriby now have two matches to go and face Aldershot Town and Torquay. Reaching forty points is a realistic aim for the team. Housham said it is important that they aim to leave the division in the best way possible if they can.
“We have two games left, one at home and then one away. The aim is maximum points to finish the season on a high.”
