Chippenham Town manager Mark Collier says certain players’ performances in their FA Cup defeat to Weymouth at the weekend has given him food for thought.
Collier was concerned by the manner of the 2-0 defeat to the Southern Premier Terras on Saturday.
A Cup run was part of their plan for the season but after falling at the first hurdle he questioned the desire of some of his squad.
“To say I’m disappointed is an understatement,” said Collier. “It was a poor, poor performance by some of our players. We have spoken to them about it and I have some big decisions to make on certain players.
No excuses from me. #Notgoodenough#bluearmy

“Too many of our players were way off the mark. Perhaps they’re finding it tough pressure wise to be a Chippenham player and reach the levels we’re trying to achieve, that’s something for me to think about.”
“We’ve played OK but OK is not good enough for Chippenham Town. Too many people played within themselves and didn’t have enough determination. We’ve gone out of the Cup with a whimper.
“Credit to Weymouth, they’ve played well and had a good shape about them. They defended properly when they had to.”
