March Town 0,
Ipswich Wanderers 4
Hares boss Paul Crosbie slated a fourth successive Thurlow Nunn League defeat as an awful display and that players had let the club down.
He said: “It was a very deserved defeat and I have no complaints. We have just not competed or shown any desire. Our passing and defending were also sloppy and it was very, very disappointing.
“The board and the helpers do a lot of work behind the scenes that keeps this club going and they did not deserve a performance like this.”
Crosbie is determined to eradicate performances like this and there will undoubtedly be changes before the next game and he added: “Players need to take more responsibility when things are not going their way instead of looking for excuses. If players do not want to buy into what we are trying to achieve and genuinely do not want to be at the club, then fine they can go. I want a squad that is going to go out and compete and we have not done that in our last three games.”
March found themselves 2-0 down in the first 15 minutes. The first goal came from a shot from 30 yards out. The second followed when March failed to press the ball and were cut open too easily.
Two more goals came after the break and only the fourth was not down to poor defending when a shot hit Josh Westley on the head and spun into the corner of the goal.
But at the other end March failed to work the opposing goalkeeper in front of the lowest gate of the season just 35.
March: Ben Collett, Ash Spendelow, Sam Darlow, Stu Porter, Max Mattless, Adam Sutton, Jack Saunders, Aidan Hollis, James McDonough, Robbie Masters, Stu Anderson. Subs used: Michael Anker, Josh Westley, Danny Emmington.
