Keynsham up for the challenge
 Women's Football News 18 Aug 2006
Keynsham up for the challenge - 18 Aug 2006 - Women's Football NewsThis Sunday will be a very special day for Keynsham Town, as they will play their first ever match in the Premier League.
The Somerset club have made rapid strides in recent seasons and their team is a multi-national one with players from several different countries. Ana Bruni is one of three Brazilians in the Keynsham side and she told Women's Soccer Scene that she is ready for the challenge. "I think we have a pretty good team," says Ana. "We've had a good pre-season and everybody gets on well, so we are quite excited and looking forward to it."
Keynsham's first match will be against Southampton Saints, a fixture which would have been unthinkable only three or four years ago, and Ana is taking nothing for granted. "It's going to be a big challenge, but we are up for it - we like a challenge," she smiles.
The build-up to the new season also included a League Cup Final win, as Keynsham defeated Chesham Utd to complete a belated hat-trick of trophies from last season. "We were pleased with that," says Ana. "We have pretty much the same team as last year and the team has been playing well all the way through. We are excited to have got a trophy in the cabinet again."
After just one defeat in the entire campaign, Ana is taking a realistic view of the season ahead: "If we keep working hard, the way we have been, we'll do alright. We keep our expectations high, so I think we can do well.
"Everyone works hard - the defence does well together, through to the midfield and front players so everyone deserves credit."
Tracey Rouemaine has progressed through local football, joining the club from Bath City before establishing herself in the Keynsham side and will now play in the Premier League. "I've been waiting for about ten years to play in this league," she enthuses. "I think we've got a good chance of doing well and coming halfway up the league this season.
"We're just trying to survive this year and anything better than that will be a bonus. We want to prove to everyone around us that we are a team to be taken seriously. We'll just look to play as a team, enjoy it and work together."
Keynsham's promotion to the league means that they will play local rivals Bristol City for the first time in their history. "I've trained with them a few times before, so I know a few of the players and what to look out for," says Tracey.
However one match stands out for the 21-year-old defender, their first home match against West Ham Utd. Tracey, who comes from a family of West Ham supporters, cannot wait for this one: "It's going to be a hard one to play against but we want to show them what we're made of and I'm not going to go easy on them!" she laughs.
"Every team is going to be a hard team to play against. Whoever we play, we are going to give 100% and play our game, not theirs - we're just going to do our best."
