23 March 2015

Ryan Kidd is proud of his lads after a battling 2-1 win over Walsall.

Bury’s youth team kept up their impressive run of form in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Walsall, to make it 14 games unbeaten in the North West Youth Alliance.

Manager, Ryan Kidd, has spoken of his pride in the lads to battle their way to a win during a very tough encounter.

He felt that his side showed the effects of a long season during the second half, but that didn’t affect their performance and instead they rallied around to get the three points.

Speaking after the match, Ryan Kidd said: “You could see for a brief moment in the second half that they are starting to feel the effects of a long season, but they stuck together.

“That will not to get beat, mixed with that desire to get the victory is fantastic. We are on a brilliant run of 14 games unbeaten in the league.

“It’s credit to the players, they had to be up at about 6.30 to get here for kick-off. It took us about two hours on the mini bus, but they don’t moan they just get on with it.

“They produced some good football today, they really have and I’m delighted with them and their attitude. “

He felt that the win itself was brilliant in a game that saw minimal chances for either side especially in the first half.

But the team took the game to Walsall in the last ten minutes and were rewarded for it, with the three points.

He said: “It was a great win, because looking back it was a very even game. We shared the spoils possession wise in the first half, we threatened a few times without really threatening the goalkeeper too much.

“Jack Ruddy, was a spectator for most of the first half as well, so both keepers didn’t have much to do. It was more of a possession game.

“In the second half we had to really push, especially in the last fifteen minutes to go and get the three points to keep ourselves in a good position in terms of the league.

“We showed a willingness and desire to go out and score that second goal, and we came up trumps on the 87th minute, with Anthony Dudley again proving his worth in and around the penalty box.”
