ADAM Fricker bemoaned the individual errors as he saw his Bridport side fall 6-0 to Falmouth in the FA Vase first round.

The defeat was Bridport’s heaviest at home for nine years but Fricker said he does not read into it.

Fricker said: “We made a lot of individual errors. To be honest, for the first 20 minutes we started quite brightly and it was Falmouth that were making the individual errors.

“Once they got their first goal we just seemed to implode a little bit. It was almost like as soon as they scored all of the confidence drained out of the team.”

Referring to the fact it was their heaviest defeat at home for nine years, Fricker said: “That is what it is. As far as I am concerned it is not the scoreline it is the result, and the performance and we are out of the cup. Whether we are out of the cup by 1-0 or 6-0 we are out of the cup. I certainly do not read anything into that it just one of those things.”

Fricker also bemoaned the loss of defender Chris McGrath to a hamstring injury.

Fricker said: “I think one factor was probably that we lost Chris McGrath after about 20 minutes to a persistent hamstring injury that he has been struggling with.

“So we had to change the team slightly which didn’t help and obviously Macker’s a very experienced, controlling defender for us.

“Just from there we made an individual error for the second goal which basically gifted them that goal and then from there we had an absolute mountain to climb.”

Fricker praised Falmouth’s efforts and did not want to detract from their performance.

Fricker said: “Take nothing away from Falmouth they are a good side.

“I think if we played that game 10 times I don’t think they would beat us 6-0 again but the long and the short of it is we did not turn up and as a team we did not do what we have been doing.”

Fricker lamented that in comparison to some previous losses Bridport got what they deserved.

Fricker said: “The past games we have lost but we have played very well and we have been unfortunate and we have not taken our chances. On Saturday we got exactly what we deserved, we did not turn up and a good side beat us comfortably.”

Bridport host Hengrove Athletic on Saturday (3pm).
