Comments affected Aldershot Town mood says Sonny Bradley

Aldershot Town defender Sonny Bradley says the club must draw a line under what has been a difficult week.

The Shots were relegated from League Two after losing 2-0 at Rotherham.

He told BBC Surrey: "There were a couple of interviews which the manager and Jamie Young gave. A few of the lads were a bit unhappy with their comments.

"It wasn't the best mood this week, I won't lie. We stayed together, trained well and went for it. We just came up short."

This week Shots manager Andy Scott, who took charge in February, says the club had "accepted failure" while keeper Young had questioned the commitment of some members of the playing squad.

Asked whether there had generally been a positive mood at the EBB Stadium this season, Bradley replied: "Definitely not.

"There have been weeks on end where I have not been happy with the results.

"We have not been consistent enough over a period of time.

"It is individual mistakes through the season which have cost us. We have not scored enough goals as a team."

The Hampshire club have dropped back into non-League following a five-year stay in League Two.

"Everyone is upset but there is no point staying upset," the 20-year-old said.

"We have got to pick ourselves up as individuals and as a team, move on and get back in the League next season."

Aldershot Town must target promotion - Sonny Bradley

Bradley has made 48 appearances for Aldershot this season while on loan from Hull City. The centre-back also had a spell at the EBB Stadium last year and he feels he has improved during his time at the club.

"I have to thank Dean Holdsworth first of all as he gave me the chance," Bradley said.

"I have grown as a player especially from my first game. I can tell the difference in myself.

"I don't know where I am going to be next season but I have got to move on and get on with my career."
