New look Fulham settling down
 Women's Football News 31 Aug 2007
 
New look Fulham settling down - 31 Aug 2007WFC Fulham are setting their sights on regaining their National Division status but, in the short term, will be gelling their new look team together.
 
Ann Marie Heatherson is one of many new arrivals at the club during the summer and she made her debut during their narrow 2-1 defeat by Portsmouth on Sunday. "It's the first real game we've had together," she told Women's Soccer Scene afterwards, "and we need to adjust and learn each other's game. Next week, hopefully, we'll understand each other better and things will be a lot different.
 
"A lot of players have been missing from pre-season friendlies and this was the first game where we all came together and it was a real test for us."
 
"We've got a great team spirit here, since I've been at the club," added Leanne Reidy who, like Ann Marie, joined the club from Charlton Athletic. "We gave our all until the end of the game, but the better team won on the day."
 
Ann Marie, winner of the Young Player of the Year award three years ago, marked her first game with a fine headed goal, although it turned out to be an injury time consolation. "It would have been better if I'd got it earlier in the game," she admitted, "but a goal's a goal. Hopefully next week, I can get a couple more and get my confidence up."
 
Fulham will take a break from league action this Sunday as they take on AFC Team Bath in the Preliminary Round of the Premier League Cup. "It should be a good challenge and help us to get to know each other," says Leanne. "Hopefully we can get a good run in the cup."
 
Although their season did not get off to a winning start, Ann Marie insists that Fulham will be one of the teams contending the title before the end of the campaign. "Long term, I think the aim is to get promoted again," she says. "This was a bit of a glitch but I am pretty sure we can do it. We've got a good enough side, as individuals on paper we've got a very good team.
 
"At the end of the season, we'll see, but I have got a very good feeling that we will be one of the competitors."
 
Fulham are one of five clubs in the Southern Division which have played in the top flight but, in the history of the Premier League, no club has yet been promoted back from that division. "There's always a first time for everything," smiles Ann Marie. "We're all hungry for it and there is no-one here saying that we can't do it.
 
"It's up to us to prove we can do it and scrap that record."
