Reasons to be cheerful despite defeats

BEWDLEY Town joint manager Craig Payton took the positives from two 3-0 defeats in the West Midlands League Premier.

The Ribbesford Meadow side lost to Wellington on Saturday and then were no match for title-chasing Wolverhampton Casuals on Tuesday.

But Payton felt there was plenty to build on for this young team.

He said: “To be honest, we actually played well but paid the price for mistakes.

“On Saturday, we had chances to score but on Tuesday it was always going to be difficult against a good side like Casuals, who were gunning for us after we beat them earlier in the season.”

Bewdley are currently in a rebuilding process but the likes of keeper Simon Dye and Lee Williamson have come to the fore. Simon has settled in really well,” said Payton.

“He moved into the area and is working at Wharton Park.

“He replaced Darren Steadman, who was probably the best keeper the club have ever had, but in some games he has saved us.

“The lads are learning from their mistakes but we’ve got to start picking up results.”

Town, who are 17th in the table, now face away league games at bottom side Barley Green on Saturday (3pm ko) and Wednesfield on Tuesday (7.45pm ko).
