Joint boss Leigh Porter had 'no complaints' after a heavy home defeat for Bourne Town.

Zak Munton's goal halved the deficit before the break on Saturday but Aylestone Park were comfortable winners at Abbey Lawn.

Porter said: "They were the best side we've played so far this season.

"They have a budget to bring in good players.

"We came up against a team who have better resources and a bigger catchment area for players.

"They had two very good wide players who were quick and skilful.

"They will do well in the league. Sometimes you have to hold your hands up because it was a tough test for us.

"We are still learning and making changes. There were positives and negatives to take from the game.

"It's going to take a few games to get where we want to be.

"There were lots of factors on Saturday with injuries,
individual errors and some decisions. But we can have no complaints really.

"There were positives such as Scott Waumsley down the left.

"Unfortunately, we lost Jake Mason to injury after only 10 minutes and Zak works better off him.

"Warren McSkelly has come back from injury and he got 90 minutes.

"The reaction in the second half was very good as we came out and looked more solid at the back. It gives us some food for thought in how we will line up next time.

"We are a new team and we'll work together to get it right.

"We are not expecting to win every game this season.

"We believe that we will gradually get better during the season.

"We can improve and give ourselves a solid foundation.

"We have not been getting hammered every week. Apart from this game, we have been losing by small margins.

"Saturday was an exception where we didn't get the rub of the green at times.

"We had some bad luck with injuries and we came up against a good side.

"We have next weekend off so we'll try to arrange a friendly and work in training to speed up this process where we know our best formation."
