After recovering from a shock opening day defeat, West Ham United manager Julia Setford is in a positive mood about the season ahead with her side putting together a five match unbeaten run since the reverse to Millwall Lionesses, including a thrilling 3-3 draw with National Division side Watford in the League Cup.
As Setford explained, this run has come on the back of a difficult start to the FA Womens Premier League campaign personnel wise with injuries to key players hampering her early season plans. "We were confident of a decent start despite the loss of several of last year's squad due to relocation or in Gemma Shepherd's case advancing to a higher league, but seem to be picking up knocks at an alarming rate with the broken collarbone suffered by former Arsenal Academy forward Kelley Blanchflower the most serious in a run of bad luck," she said.
"Our physios are working overtime at the moment and it is a credit to younger players that they have been able to step up from the reserve team and still allow us to get results."
However, Setford is concerned that the injuries are to key players and is aware the youngsters are having to fill some big boots and is therefore looking to bolster the squad. "I am certainly interested in taking a Super League player in on loan if they require game time, now their season is coming to a close and have one or two feelers out already," the Hammers boss explained, "but I am by no means restricting my search to that level as there are a couple of targets we have in mind playing in the Premier League as well."
With unrivalled training facilities at West Ham United's main training complex in Romford, Setford is happy to cast her eyes over any player who feels they could play at first team level and welcome such players contacting her on (07970) 325369 or via email@example.com.
