LYMPSTONE boss Duane Greenslade was understandably very disappointed at what he saw a slack of commitment to the Lympets cause on Saturday afternoon, writes Steve Birley.

The Lympets travelled to Dawlish with a 1st team squad missing a number of players who, it seemed, preferred to be with the clubs second team rather than travel with the senior side.

Factor in a number of other non-appearances and Greenslade was left feeling very frustrated.

Despite the problems, those that did turn out gave their all, but it was no surprise that the home side took full advantage and raced into a 3-0 half time lead, a lead that would have been far greater, but for a superb display between the posts from Lympets veteran glovesman Mike Delahave.

The Lympets battled bravely against the odds after the break and their efforts were rewarded when Sam Connell notched a consolation goal.

Boss Greenslade said: “How can you have five substitutes at a second team game and just the one with the first team. Players really do need to think of the bigger picture and play where they are picked to play. It has to be for the team not for the individual.

This weekend, the Lympets take on Pinhoe and Greenslade will be hoping for far better commitment in terms of availability!
