CHEADLE Town director of football and coach Alan Beaman warned Saturday’s 6-0 defeat at Silverdale Athletic in the Staffs County Senior League Premier Division should act as a wake-up call to his players.
“We are in with a chance of winning something this season, having got through to the League Cup final and the semi-final of the Staffs Vase, but attitudes have got to change if we are to succeed,” said Beaman.
Beaman missed Saturday’s game because of a prior engagement, but manager Mark Alcock filled him in with what went wrong.
Cheadle left themselves with a mountain to climb after conceding three goals in the opening 15 minutes and trailed 4-0 at half-time.
“Certain players have got to show more commitment to the club. I was disappointed that only six players turned up for training in the week,” said Beaman.
Cheadle’s task against a team on the up was made more difficult by the unavailability of key players Jake Perks, Andrew Dodd, Jake Alcock and Patt Callaghan.
