MARK Saggers slammed his Royston Town team, after they were hammered 8-0 at Aylesbury, on Saturday. The Crows had already lost 6-0 and 7-0 this season, but Saturday's capitulation left Saggers fuming: "I have never, ever, been involved in game like that where I was so embarrassed and humiliated," he blasted. "There was a total lack of desire and effort. We were 6-0 down at half-time, and the second half was like the Alamo. "If it hadn't been for Barry White in goal they could easily have scored 15, and that's being generous to us. "The first goal was never a penalty, the player just threw himself to the ground, and we had some people missing, but there's no excuse. "The midfield were just walking around and letting people run through them. It's frustrating because we are so much better than that." Saggers promised changes to the team, with former skipper Joff Dobson coming out of retirement to help the Crows. But he ruled out resigning. "It was a long way to go to not enjoy a moment of the game, but I'm no quitter. "At least when we lost to Tring last week we could come away with the consolation that we played some great football in the final 25 minutes, and had something to build on. "Only three players did themselves justice, and Brian Cannon [assistant manager] and I could have done better out there. At least we would have tried.
