Ray looking on the bright side after battling defeat
FC CLACTON manager Ray Turner concentrated on the positives after watching his battling side bow out of the Red Insure Challenge Cup.
The Seasiders suffered a 1-0 defeat in their first-round encounter at Felixstowe and Walton, on Tuesday night.
Ben Cranfield’s unstoppable long-range effort proved the difference between the sides, but Clacton went agonisingly close through Adam Daniels, Jack Clampin and Parris Newland.
Billy Wales had a goal ruled out for offside while, at the other end, Joe Fowler made two brilliant saves to deny the Suffolk hosts.
“It was a much-improved performance after Saturday,” said Turner, referring to his side’s 6-2 defeat at Godmanchester Rovers.
“I wasn’t too despondent about the result."
