BROMSGROVE Sporting boss Brendan Kelly confirmed he was emotionally drained following his side's sensational 4-3 success over top of the table Peterborough Sports this week.

Will Shorrock's last gasp winner sent Sporting players and supporters alike into raptures of delight and Kelly said: "It was the perfect end to a perfect game".

"I was exhausted at the end of it that I just had to go home and chill out - although I didn't leave the ground as quickly as I did the previous week when the game against Didcot had to be abandoned.

"But it was the intensity and the pace produced by both sides, that there just wasn't a moment's rest. I'm told there was just 15 seconds left to play when Will scored.

"It was a great goal as well, with Jack Wilson getting on the overlap for Will to fire home.

"You could tell how much it meant. Some of the supporters were climbing up the wall, while others ran onto the pitch to celebrate with the players. It was unbelievable and euphoric at the same time

"Peterborough are the best side we've faced this season. I thought we edged the first half but then Peterborough had a 20 to 25 minute period in the second half where they battered us and it was during this period that they levelled to make it 3-3.

"We made some mistakes in defence, which were inevitable in a game like this, but despite the result, I still don't like conceding three goals at home".

The Rouslers were due to face Worcester City in a re-arranged Worcester Senior Urn semi final this week ahead of Saturday's trip to Kempston Rovers.

Kelly said: "The victory over Peterborough Sports took a great deal out of us and I will definitely be utilising the squad against Worcester - but it's still a game that I would want to win. We're on a good run of form at the moment and I don't want to interfere with that

"But the Kempston game has to take preference."

Kelly has also added to his squad this week by signing Michael McGrath from Hereford.

The Rouslers boss admitted: "I'm really chuffed that he's chosen to join us. He had a number of offers including Gloucester City and Barrow, together with a few of our local rivals.

"But Michael's a local lad from Northfield and he watched us play against Didcot until it was called off and was impressed with what he saw.

"When someone of Michael's experience and ability becomes available, it's an opportunity that I couldn't turn down.

"But I'll be honest with the players and say that someone might have to go out in the aftermath of Michael coming in".
