PNE Duo On Gentry Day Winner

12 March 2016

Both Marnick Vermijl and Eoin Doyle spoke to PNE PlayerHD after combining to score the winner at Gentry Day.

With the score all square at 1-1 going into the final few minutes, an over-cooked cross from Greg Cunningham found its way to Vermijl who fired towards goal, with Doyle just about getting a final touch before the ball sailed into the net. 

Both claimed the goals, but both agreed the three points were more important as North End secured a 2-1 victory over north-west rivals Bolton.

Vermijl said: “I had the kick, but I don’t know if he [Doyle] got a touch, I couldn’t see it from my angle. 

“The win’s one for the fans as well – we did really well to get the win, and hopefully we can kick on from this.

“You can see how much it meant to the fans today – it’s an unbelievable feeling.”

Of course, Doyle was quick to argue his corner, stating on the goal: “It came off my shin so I’m claiming that it’s mine!

“The changing room’s buzzing to come back from 1-0 down – I think in the second-half we dominated the game and we deserved it in the end.

“The gaffer had a few words at half-time and it worked – we kept grinding them down and eventually we got the goal.”
