Housham proud de­spite the drop

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

NA­TIONAL LEAGUE: A 3-0 home de­feat to play-off side Aldershot Town was harsh on rel­e­gated North Ferriby United.

They matched the vis­i­tors for long spells, but Aldershot scored the only goal of the first half in the 31st minute when man of the match Bernard Men­sah rose to head home Nick Arnold’s nice­lyflighted cross.

Ferriby pressed for an equaliser, but Men­sah dou­bled the lead from close range af­ter 62 min­utes and sub­sti­tute Scott Ren­dell scored the third af­ter Reece Thomp­son had headed against a post.

Ferriby man­ager Steve Housham was philo­soph­i­cal af­ter the game,

He said: “I’m proud of the way the team played. We showed our usual com­mit­ment and that was im­por­tant. I would have liked us to pro­duce a win for our sup­port­ers who have been tremen­dous through­out. They could have got on the play­ers’ backs, but they recog­nise the ef­fort and com­mit­ment that the side has shown.”
