Bevan: ‘A huge amount of character’

FAIRFORD Town boss Jody Bevan was delighted to see his charges register their first victory of the campaign on Saturday, but knows there is much more to come from his side.

Having been 2-0 down at the break, second half goals from Mason Thompson, Ben Lodge and an injury-time winner from John Thomas sealed the win.

“It was important to get off the mark with the win. It has been a long time coming and it probably took a bit longer than we were expecting it to,” said Bevan, speaking to the Swindon Advertiser.

“In the first half, it wasn’t going well and we said some harsh words at half-time. Fortunately, it was what they needed.

“I don’t want to to go overboard about it because I’ve been telling the players for weeks that we aren’t a bad side, we have just been underachieving.

“We showed a huge amount of character to pull one out of the bag like that and it is frustrating they need harsh words before they perform.

“Several times before Saturday we have gone behind, scored to get back into it but it was too late.

“The aim is not to have a bad first-half performance to start with. If we do play like we did in the second half for the whole game, we will be a dangerous team.”
