Jenny takes her chances

Jenny takes her chances - 9 Sep 2011 - Women's Football NewsJenny Newman feels she took her chance to shine after coming off the bench to grab two goals in Charlton Athletic's team's 5-3 victory against Reading FC Women on Sunday, despite initial nerves. 
The striker-cum-winger was thrown into the action after half an hour when Ellie Stenning was stretchered off and grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck.
With an end-to-end contest finely poised at 3-2 in the Addicks' favour with 15 minutes remaining, Jenny bagged a brace to, put her side out of reach and inflict a first defeat of the season on their opponents. Speaking after the game, she said: "I was really nervous because I haven't played so far this season. I didn't expect to come on but when I did I thought, 'this is my chance, I have to take it' and I felt like I did.
"I had a lot of space out on the wing and I enjoyed playing out there. I felt really comfortable when I was on the ball and when getting crosses and passes away."
The 21-year-old's first effort was a real poacher's effort, turning Gemma Bryan's cross home, but her second was magnificent. Picking the ball up wide on the right, she took one touch, saw the Reading goalkeeper off her line and curled the ball in off the upright.
"All the girls are saying it was a fluke," she explained, "but, honestly, before the ball came to me I thought, 'right I just have to take one touch and hit it'.
"It got stuck under my feet a little but once I got it out and struck it, it looked destined for the net. It definitely wasn't a fluke!"
Coming into the game off the bench is not always the easiest task for a footballer but, with her side in the ascendancy, Jenny felt the game was there for the taking.
"The girls had been playing well in the first half and I could see goals in the game when I came on because we had hit the post three times. We just had to push on and be more clinical up front.
"Attacking-wise the team was brilliant. In some spells of the game we passed it around really well and they couldn't get near us, they were just chasing shadows.
"We did feel comfortable at times, with our passing and movement, but there were still some sloppy spells where we lost concentration and let their players through and let in some sloppy goals."
