AFC Fylde Head Coach Chris Beech was delighted with his side’s character as the Coasters made it three wins in four Vanarama National League games against Bromley on Saturday.

Danny Ormerod’s early strike proved the difference at Mill Farm in the 1-0 victory, with Fylde defeating Andy Woodman’s promotion-chasing Ravens.

And Beech praised the efforts of the Coasters players, as well as his coaching staff and the club’s supporters after the important three points.

Beech said: “It’s congratulations to everybody’s efforts, not just to the players, but to the staff and the supporters because everybody, so to get the win in respect to who it was, takes good character, personality and motivation.

“The players definitely represented that and the crowd got right behind us to help us today which I was really pleased with.

“Andy (Woodman) is a great guy, he’d done really well with a brilliant team so they are not just going to go away, they are going to have chances and aspects of play especially as their prize is to get in the Football League, so I told the lads it would go right down to the last minute and what I really enjoyed was the growth in the team.

“Our game management was better, the football was still as good as it’s been when we’ve played at home, as we’ve been very good at home, but there’s seemed to be a bit more collective spirit and composure.”

Beech believes the squad are “buying in” to the work that the management team are implementing, with impressive attack-minded football on show at Mill Farm.

He added: “The lads are buying in to what we are doing, and it’s credit to the group and if I’m a fan of football, get down to Fylde, it’s pretty exciting watching our football with the players that we have got.”
