FC Halifax Town got back to winning ways this weekend at the MBi Shay Stadium, brushing aside Grimsby Town 4-2.
The vital clash saw a debut handed to young loan signing Billy Whitehouse, following signing a month’s deal from Doncaster Rovers last weekend. And he impressed instantly scoring the club first of the afternoon, however after the game Whitehouse was soon to applaud his new teammates.
“It was a very good performance, we were very good on the ball as well as off it,” said Whitehouse. “
“We capitalised on the first goal and we didn’t sit back we kept doing what we were doing, and came in at half time comfortable. After that we did the same in the second half and we did well all game.”
It was a game for the calm heads as Grimsby held much of the possession in the first half, and Town played their famous counter attacking football, and Whitehouse was quick to mention his captain Nicky Wroe after he kept his players cool and calm.
“He said we just couldn’t let ourselves down and calmed us down as well. In the centre of midfield he is a main player and he organised us,” expressed Whitehouse.
“Throughout the game we kept to our game plan and we stayed disciplined and our discipline was the main thing for us today, because when we got our goals we didn’t sit off and we were comfortable. Conceding two goals we didn’t want to do that in the second half but that’s how football goes sometimes, and the end of the day we got the three points so we are happy.”
