BRIDPORT manager Adam Fricker has said he is “not a quitter” in light of the club’s recent poor form.

The Bees had previously been on a 10-game losing run, a streak which was halted on Tuesday night as they ran out 5-1 winners over Sherborne Town through goals by Leigh Bailey, Mark Salter (2), Kameron Andrew and Braeden Symes.

But speaking after Saturday’s collapse against Cadbury Heath, which saw them go 3-0 down inside the opening 20 minutes of the game, Fricker said he would not be walking away from the club, unless he was no longer wanted.

He said: “If we were just poor and had been poor for the last 10 games I’d have chucked my hat in and said to the team that they need someone else to turn this around.

“But that isn’t the case and I’m certainly not a quitter. I wouldn’t walk out on the club unless they wanted me to.”

Despite the loss, Fricker was keen to praise the efforts of his players, who tried to fight their way back into the match, but admitted it was too little too late.

He said: “After the first 20 minutes they were excellent but you can’t go 3-0 down and expect the performance to come in after that.

“They give everything but by then it’s too late.”
