After the 2-1 victory against Witton Albion, Bradford (Park Avenue) manager John Deacey was pleased to see the return of a goalkeeper who is well known to the club:
“We played some good football but there were some positives and negatives for us. It was good to see John Lamb back for us and Jack (Rea) did well in the middle of the park.”
The Avenue started with the popular goalkeeper between the sticks for the game as trialist Tom Morgan was an unused substitute. Also, Jack Rea, who was previously at local neighbours Guiseley AFC, featured for the away side, and played the full 90 minutes at Witton.
Deacey admitted there is room for improvement ahead of the Vanarama Conference North season, but was happy to finish pre-season with a victory:
“We didn’t look as good in the first half compared to the second but today was a good result for us. Witton Albion have beaten the likes of AFC Telford United and Chester FC, so to come here and win 2-1 is decent.”
