Knowles Happy With Win

Bradford (Park Avenue) defender James Knowles played a key role in the win at Barrow AFC, and spoke to the official website after the victory.

The centre back was pleased with the three points:

“We defended well, Qualts had a good game too and we coped well to see it through. We know we can’t go up or go down, it’s just seeing out these final two games now.”

After climbing to 10th in The Skrill North, Knowles admits it’s been a frustrating season:

“It’s been the story of the season with the number of injuries and suspensions. I don’t know who will play on Monday! We’ve had Alex (Davidson) out since Christmas and Hotte has been carrying an injury for months. If we would’ve had a full strength side it could’ve been completely different!

With the season nearing its end for the Avenue, Knowles will not have time to relax:

“I’ve got a busy summer because I’m getting married! I’m feeling fit, the manager has decent with us about training because we have lads travelling from different places plus with injuries. We’ve got a good side and there is a great camaraderie between the lads.”
