Kendrick admits side were second best on day

AFTER completing his first competitive 90 minutes as a permanant member of the Blyth Spartans squad, defender Joe Kendrick believes that the side as a whole were second best in the 2-1 opening day defeat at Witton Albion.

The former Mansfield Town and Darlington left back said: “We were miles off, just not good enough and we can’t complain and they deserved to win.

“Individually we were poor, and as a team as well.

“Being positive ,it’s got the game out of the way and we can move on.”
