Wilson praises Burnham Ramblers' never-say-die spirit
3:33pm Thursday 20th March 2014 in Sport
BURNHAM Ramblers boss Keith Wilson heaped praise on his side after they showed their never-say-die spirit to rescue a point at Ware.
The Leslie Field side had looked set for their fourth straight defeat after slipping 3-1 behind, in Tuesday’s Ryman League division one north contest in Hertfordshire.
But with the match drifting into stoppage time, Billy Hunt popped up with his second of the night, followed by a dramatic leveller from Terry Griffiths.
“I got my team back,” said a delighted Wilson, who admitted his players had been looking bereft of confidence heading into the game.
“That result and performance was much more like it and the boys showed so much spirit and character.
“They weren’t prepared to roll over and kept going until the very end, to make sure we got something from the game. And it was a very deserved point, achieved with a very makeshift side.”
