FOOTBALL: Manley pleased with Ilminster Town's progress
9:10pm Monday 30th September 2013 in Sport
ILMINSTER Town player/manager Darren Manley praised his side’s performance after a 3-1 away win against Yatton Athletic.
Lewis Gillman, Nick Waites and Mikey Whitefield scored the goals for Ilminster, but Manley was more impressed with his side’s defensive efforts.
He said: “We played half decent on Saturday actually. We started off really well and took the lead with the penalty from Lewis Gillman and from there we looked really good.
“We’re just trying to make ourselves hard to break down and really strong defensively, and the lads seem to like that at the moment and they’re listening to what we’re trying to do, it’s good.
“We’ve put together some good results in the last few weeks and if can keep strong defensively and continue to be hard to score against, hopefully these results will continue.”
Ilminster climb to 13th place in the Somerset County Premier Division, leapfrogging opponents Yatton.
On Saturday they travel to Weston side Langford Rovers 2000, hoping to make it three wins on the bounce.
