Barry Town United manager hails unbelievable Barry Town United victory as ‘best ever’
Barry Town United manager Gavin Chesterfield was full of praise for his side as he hailed the victory over leaders Bangor City on the weekend as the ‘best ever’ since taking over at the Vale of Glamorgan outfit in 2007.
Barry defended admirably throughout and Kayne McLaggon’s fifth goal in the Welsh Premier League since his move from Merthyr Town in the summer was enough to give Chesterfield’s side all three points in Nantporth on Saturday afternoon.
Following the win, Barry Town United manager Gavin Chesterfield described his delight as he hailed Barry’s win as the ‘best ever’ since taking over the reins 10 years ago when speaking to sgorio.
He said: “That’s Probably the best result I have had at my time at the club, we aren’t going to underestimate or overestimate that. You come here, Bangor are a good side, give them credit.
I thought some of their play today was fantastic, but I have got to give my lads credit, we have come away from home, showed huge togetherness and really brought into the game plan and we got the goal and the three points.”
Chesterfield also commended Mike Lewis following the game after standing tall and keeping a clean sheet for the visitors.
“That’s what he’s there to do, You know when we come to a place like this they’re going to have chances, but Michael has pulled off two or three fantastic saves and to get these three points could be a really significant moment for this team.
Barry are starting to find their feet in the Welsh Premier League after starting slow and currently stand in seventh place in the Welsh Premier League and admitted his side could use the win over Bangor as a stepping stone to push on in the league and the cup respectively.
“Its Huge really, it is great coming to places like this with a good crowd and a great atmosphere against great oppostion – its everything you want in a football game so for us we are delighted to be here but we don’t just want to make up the numbers, we want to come and make our own mark and i know it sounds boring but all we can do now is focus on our next game,” admitted Chesterfield.
