Thrilled Nash Boss Mark Is Brad All Over

Curzon Ashton manager Mark Bradshaw was in no mood to play down his side’s first day whitewash of Bradford PA.

Avenue had no answer as the clinical Nash netting five times without reply to get off to a dream start.

It may only be the opening day, but Curzon head the fledgling National League North table thanks to their profitable afternoon in front of goal.

Repairing the club’s dreadful home record from last season was high on his summer list of priorities and Bradshaw is bullish following the first game romp.

“We got a lot of things right,” the delighted manager said on the club’s YouTube channel.

“We played with dynamic energy - and it’s nice to think we have had what I call a full performance.

“Actually, it’s probably the first full performance I’ve been totally happy with since I took over.

“People will say ‘it’s the first game’ or ‘you played against a young team’ but it’s all positive from our point of view.”

Bradshaw added: “Whilst it is only one performance, it’s one we are very happy with.

“I can’t wait to see the goals back because we scored some wonderful ones.

“Last season at home we really struggled and we didn’t get the number of goals we should have, so to start like that is very encouraging.

“It’s very pleasing and nobody is getting carried away. But to be able to go into Tuesday’s game at Southport with that type of performance behind us will give us a lot of confidence.”
