Uppingham Town assistant manager Billy Beaver was more than disappointed with the attitude of some of his players before their 2-1 loss at Thorney.
He said three of his players arrived late, hungover from drinking the night before.
“It isn’t good enough,” he said. “I don’t want to name names publicly. We’ll keep that within the club.
“They let us down. They arrived with no apology and it seemed a big joke.”
In the first half, Thorney took a 1-0 lead.
After the break, a long ball over the top from Thorney caught Uppingham out as they doubled their lead.
Jack Salt pulled a goal back for Town but they slipped to their fourth defeat out of five PDFL Premier Division matches.
Beaver added: “We were poor. I can’t remember us mustering a chance first half.”
