From The Gaffer

Under 23s Coach, John Currall said: “It’s been a few weeks since we last played, so we are looking forward to a matchday again. The girls have been training well and are raring to go. We want to finish the season as strong as we can.”

“There’s no easy game in this league. They gave us a real good game at home last time out. We had to come from behind at half time to get the three points. They’re a good physical side. Their position in the table means nothing to us. We know we have to have the right application and attitude on Sunday in order to get a result.”

“We know we can’t change where we sit in the table. But we asking for consistency from the girls; we’ve had our standards and set them throughout the season, and we want to continue that to the very end. The girls’ have put in some good performances this season and got some good results too; it’s a case of continuing that and ending the season on a high. We have one eye on the Plate Final the weekend after – we want to go into that off the back of a good run of form and full of confidence.”
