At the end of the match, Coach Kevin Welsh of Newtown said they will make some adjustments as they head into the final. “The opponents gave us exactly what we needed to get tonight; to basically prepare ourselves for the next game,” he said.
“We will go back to the training ground and work on the things we could not get done tonight—basically work on some shooting drills,” Welsh added.
Coach Alex Claxton of Bath United praised the efforts of his players and suggested that losing only 5-0 to Newtown was not a bad result.
“To come up against a team like Newtown and concede only five goals is a plus for the team,” Claxton said. The finals will be this Sunday, December 20th at 7 pm.
