STRATFORD Town manager Carl Adams pulled no punches after watching his side lose their third Calor Southern League Division One South & West game of the season when they crashed 3-1 at home to Godalming Town on Saturday.
Some poor defending saw Town three goals down at half-time before striker Richard Gregory pulled a goal back with a 25-yard strike in the second-half. Godalming were down to 10 men after defender Chris Musgrove was sent off in the first-half.
The omens were not good before the game when first team regulars Josh Shepherd and Chris Sterling called to say that they had broken down on the motorway and would subsequently miss the match. Town were already missing star striker Matt West, who was at a family wedding, and injured skipper Liam Reynolds.
Adams said: “It didn’t help losing those players but I’m not making any excuses for our performance. It’s the first time that I have been embarrassed by a Stratford team managed by me and I’d like to apologise to the supporters.
“I’m seeing the team in a different light now and I will be looking to get some new faces in before next Saturday’s game. Some things are just not working and it’s time for a change.
“We played better in the second-half but by then the damage had been done. It’s been a horrendous seven days and we have to address it.”
