Olsson fury at Boro collapse

SCARBOROUGH Athletic boss Paul Olsson was apoplectic with rage after his side capitulated to landlords Bridlington Town.

After a goalless first period, Boro completely fell to pieces after the break, to concede five goals without reply.

The defeat ended any lingering hopes of NCEL Premier glory this season and also left boss Olsson seething with his “bottleless” players.

He fumed: “There are just no excuses.

“We talked about things at half-time, then came out and gave them two goals.”

Boro’s collapse commenced in the 48th minute when Gary Hepples slipped and opened the door for the first.

Then keeper Tom Woodhead was outleapt by former Boro striker Craig Hogg, who doubled the advantage.

Olsson added: “You can’t give any team a two-goal lead. It isn’t good enough.

“The fact that we just crumbled after this made things even worse for me.

“If you can’t be up for a derby game then it is a struggle to be up for any game.

“We didn’t show any guts, we didn’t dig in and so many players went missing.

“Hopefully this was a one-off, but it is such a bad game to have a bad day in.

“There was a good crowd for the game and our fans deserved better. Our performance really was a disgrace.
