Not a bad start - Rachel

Not a bad start - Rachel - 29 Aug 2008 - Women's Football NewsRachel Brown insists there is a lot more to come from Everton despite their winning start to the season.
 
Speaking to Women's Soccer Scene after her side's 4-1 win over WFC Fulham on Sunday, Rachel was pleased with the result but admitted: "Performance wise, I don't think we really got into fifth gear but it's not a bad start.
 
"Credit to Fulham, they never took their foot off the pedal. They have only been out of the top flight for one year so we did know a bit about them and their players, so coming into the game you can never take things lightly and they did well today."
 
One major boost for Everton has been the outstanding form of star midfielder Fara Williams, who scored a hat-trick in the win at Fulham. "Fara's a joy to watch when she's in form like this," smiles Rachel. "She can score in all different ways, she's a great player and it's good to see her scoring some goals."
 
Everton have gone into the season with a settled squad, having not made any major signings, and they are expected to be the major challengers to Arsenal during the campaign. Will any other clubs be up amongst the leaders? "It's hard to judge at this early stage," Rachel replies, "because we have only seen the teams that we have played against. A lot of clubs have brought in new players and it takes a bit of time to see how they gel in together.
 
"Arsenal are obviously going to be favourites for the league again and we are hoping to be one of the teams to press them - I thought Doncaster were a pretty strong outfit and Leeds will be better although they are having one or two problems at the moment, so things will take shape soon.
 
"Some clubs have added to their squad but we haven't - a couple of younger players have come up from the reserves and are doing really well in the squad. We are a solid outfit and have the same team as last year, and are looking to build on the success we had last year. There is an extra bit of competition which is always good for us."
 
After battling with injuries over the last few years, Rachel is setting her sights on playing regularly once again. "It was fit to play last season," she admitted, "but Danielle (Hill) did really well and kept me out of the side and she deserved her place. I have worked very hard this summer to get back to full fitness and made sure my knee is as protected as it can be by building up the muscles around it, so I am hoping I can get a full season under my belt this year."
