Players apologise after 8-0 humiliation

Maidenhead Utd 8 Truro City 0

City's turbulent season sunk to a new low as they suffered their heaviest defeat for many years.

Docked ten points on Thursday after the club went into administration, City went into the game at York Road with a minus two points tally and a win would have taken into the plus zone.

However, after trailing 1-0 at the break they fell apart in the second period as the Berkshire side scored seven unanswered goals  to send the visitors to a humiliating defeat.

Sadly, the club's uncertain future at last seems to have caught up with the squad.

Many players are wanted by rival clubs and just how long manager Lee Hodges can keep the squad together is doubtful.

He said: "I will have a chat with them on the bus back and see where we go. We gave up in the second half as the heads went down and there is not many times I have said that about them."

And several of the players apologised for the side's display via Twitter.

Stewart Yetton said: "Absolutely embarrassed by today's result and performance and can only apologise to the fans,"

Dan Green added: "Apologies to the fans for today's performance and result. Not the standards we've set for ourselves. Hope we get chance to put things right.

And keeper Tim Sandercombe: "The fans do not deserve that, loyal and committed beyond what's expected of them, apologies go out to all those who witnessed today's shocker."

City's first half performance was pretty and they were unlucky to go in 1-0 down to a goal just before the break from Reece Tilson-Lascaris.

However, after the interval Tilson-Lascaris quickly struck twice to complete his hat-trick and City then disintegrated with Alex Wall (2), Paul Semakula, Bobby Behzadi (penalty) and Lee Barney all netting.

Truro are next in action at home to Bromley on Saturday.

City: Sandercombe; Green, Williams, Ash, Hodges, Cooke, Kelly, Broad, Yetton, Moore, Afful. Subs (all used): Watkins, Hall. Carne.

Goals: Reece Tilson-Lascaris (38) 1-0, Tilson-Lascaris (48) 2-0, Tilson-Lascaris (57) 3-0, Alex Wall (64) 4-0, Paul Semakula (67) 5-0; Bobby Behzadi (pen 83) 6-0, Alex Wall (87) 7-0, Lee Barney (90) 8-0.
