Players let club down, says Shipston boss Hedderman

MANAGER Steve Hedderman says Shipston’s players are letting themselves and the club down.

Hedderman was left fuming after Monday’s 2-1 defeat at Boldmere Sports, questioning his players’ attitude and desire.

Shipston dominated large patches of the game, but the Shipston boss felt his players did not earn the right to win it.

Hedderman’s men trailed 2-0 at the break, before a much-improved second-half performance saw them pull a late goal back through James Drinkwater.

“I’m perplexed by the performance,” said Hedderman.

“In the first ten to 15 minutes we were all over them, then five minutes of mayhem followed when we lost any resemblance of being a football team.

“Some of the worst football we’ve played this year followed. We were all over the place.

“We spoke how we have to be physical with a team like Boldmere, but we were physically weak and mentally even weaker.

“Some home truths were said at half-time but it was too little, too late for us.

“I am at the end of my tether with some of the players. I am fed up with giving them chance after chance and it being thrown back in my face.

“I’m going to change my style of management for the last eight games to see if I can get a response looking ahead to next season.

“Those players letting the rest down need to look hard at their own performances over recent weeks and ask themselves whether it’s been good enough or not.”

Shipston now have two tough home games inside a week, with Bartestree on Saturday before Alcester Town on Tuesday night.

“If we play the same way against Bartestree or Alcester it’ll be a cricket score,” Hedderman added.
