SHIPSTON Excelsior manager Steve Hedderman remained defiant and upbeat despite his side’s defeat to GNP Sports on Saturday.

In a match switched to Shipston’s London Road ground due to the wet weather, goals from Josh O’Grady (2), Tom Rawlings and Scott Hammond saw GNP claim a 4-0 win to stay 13 points clear at the top.

Shipston missed a host of chances in the second half and Hedderman said: “4-0 was a harsh score.

“I have no idea how we didn’t score in the second half.

“I thought it was a really even game on a tricky surface. We knew we were going to be up against is, against a side with the quality that GNP has, but we thought we could sneak something.

“I actually felt we were the better team in the second half, but we just didn’t take any of our chances.

“We were punished by a breakaway goal and a wonder goal. It just wasn’t to be on the day and we’ll dust ourselves down and go again.”
