Worksop Town boss happy with display as Tigers start pre-season with a win
Tigers boss Craig Parry was happy with his side’s display as they kicked off pre-season with a 6-2 win over Hemsworth Miners Welfare.
New signing Stephen Mcdonell bagged a hat-trick with Ify Ofoegbu bagging a brace and Aaron Sennett-Neilson getting the other.
Worksop had been pegged back after taking a two goal lead before they scored four times in the closing half hour.
“Overall I am pleased after the tough week,” said Parry. “There were a lot of tired legs out there.
“We had a hard session the night before, but that is what pre season is for.
“I am pleased with the result and performance. There is a lot we have to improve on and we will do.
“In the last two thirds I thought the forwards played really well in pressing the ball and winning the ball back.
“We were calmer on the ball. We moved the ball a little better and switched play well and that was pleasing.
“We looked good when we played the way we want to play.
“The combinations in the front three and full-backs joining in were good.
“It took us a bit to get into that side of things and make the first pass a positive pass rather than going backwards
“When we did that we got through the lines well and scored goals.”
Parry was also quick to praise hat-trick hero McDonnell, who rejoined the club for a third spell the day before.
“He is a fit, strong lad and we have high hopes for him,” added Parry.
“He will score goals and he took his goals well today. He has got confidence and I love that. I think we will be good for each other.”
