Hebburn Town manager Scott Oliver has said that he doesn’t feel proud of his side for making it as far as the fifth round of the FA Vase this season.

Oliver’s side overcame Eccleshill United, Billingham Synthonia, City of Liverpool, Hallam, Stockton Town and Shepshed Dynamo to make it to this stage.

A Jack Donaghy own goal and an Amar Purewal goal halted Hebburn’s cup run, however, and Oliver certainly wasn’t happy.

“I don’t feel proud at this minute,” he said.

“I don’t feel proud at all. We had the players to do way better than what we’ve seen today. I don’t think it’s a massive achievement what we’ve done, we’ve got the players in there, the club has backed us, and we should’ve gone as far as we’ve gone. Some would argue we should’ve gone further.

“I don’t feel proud at the moment, I don’t think we’ve achieved anything. I feel that we’ve let people down and that’s what I think at this precise moment.

“When you think of how hard we’ve worked to get here, I think that’s our seventh game in the competition. To start at the extra preliminary round and to take this long to get a good opportunity to be on the verge of playing in the quarter final at home, I’m pretty disappointed in the performance mind.”

The club was backed by a record attendance of 1,310 and Oliver admitted he felt bad for them.

He said: “I feel really bad for everyone that came today. In the previous games we’ve worked hard, and we’ve fought like tigers, but today we didn’t. Second half we just sat there and accepted it.

“The shape was poor, we had too many men ahead of the ball, we gave it away, we never managed to gain any momentum, we couldn’t put two passes together, we couldn’t win a header. Considering how we’ve worked hard during the week, we knew exactly what to expect, individuals were poor. I’m pretty shocked at this moment.”
