Andy Parkinson has played in a Worthington Cup final and been a professional since 1996 but he admitted he had never experienced anything like Saturday’s 11-goal thriller.
"It was the highest scoring game I have ever played in in my 15 years as a professional," said the 31-year-old who scored the second goal. "There was some great attacking from us and not-so-great defending.
"I had to ask in the second half what the score was as I didn’t know! "It was an awkward game in the first half as we caused ourselves our own problems but we went in at half-time in the lead, which was a bonus considering how we played as I didn’t think we played too well.
"But if you score seven goals you can’t be too despondent.
"The gaffer was pleased with the three points but we were all disappointed we conceded four at home. You shouldn’t really have to score five or six goals to win games at home."
