AFC Fylde shocked by quality of opposition

David Haythornthwaite, Fylde owner, said on the club website: 

“Last time I spoke to Jim (manager) just before he went into hospital, I said to him: ‘As I told you, this is a tough league.’

I’ve been in them all, down to the very bottom, and you have to go a long way down to find really bad teams and really bad leagues. National North has some good sides, including six ex-Football League teams.These are well-organised sides and there are no gimmes. If you don’t turn up you are going to get turned over. Those Bradford lads had been to Spennymoor on the Saturday, worked all day and travelled over the top to play us but they put a shift in. They are part-time and we’re full-time but you can’t let your guard down. I think Jim and his management team have been shocked by the standard of football in this division. But we’ve got 21 points from 10 games. That’s 2.1 per game and if we keep that up we’ll be champions.” He continued:

“We’ve made a good start and played some great football, which is most important to me because I’m fanatical about playing the game the right way. All in all I’m happy with the way it’s going." Source: Andy Moore and Lytham St Annes Express
