“If I live to be a hundred years old, I will never know how we lost that game”, was Eike Alanne’s assessment of Brook Street’s 1-0 defeat away to Swiss Ranger, where Louis Crook’s sixty-second strike brought to an end Brook Street’s long unbeaten run.

“We had chances to win it and didn’t take them; they had one shot on target and that’s all it took. Man for man, we’re better than them yet it’s us going home empty-handed. Football can be a cruel sport”.

“What is again disappointing is the fact we lost another very soft goal from a set piece”, he continued. “We totally gifted them it by switching off again.”

The defeat saw Brook Street slip to fourth place, being leapfrogged by MacAuleys Saints and Swiss Ranger.
