Good to make a winning start... - 18 Jan 2013 - Women's Football NewsThe result against Greece this week was a good one, not only for the win, but also by how we played. 
We got our principles right and that was very pleasing. It was nice to get off to winning ways in our first game of the year.
I am in no doubts that the scoreline was a true reflection of the game. If anything, we could have and should have scored more goals. But it was pleasing to see the positions we got in during the game and 3-0 is still a great result.
We fielded a relatively inexperienced side for this game but I don't really think that the score was even more pleasing because of that. I do think that afterwards, when you reflect, you can then appreciate just how good a performance it was. We now have strength and depth in our squad, which was probably a major factor in our last campaign, so from that point of view it is very pleasing too.
There were first caps and full debuts given and the girls took their chances. Rachel Hignett did well when she came on as did Nadia Lawrence, both players are really exciting for us. Lauren Price has come into her own a lot recently and is turning into a really good, reliable centre half. The future is looking really good in that direction!
This was our first international for a couple of months since our last one against Holland and, although we played well both times, the two games could hardly have been more contrasting. Our performance against Holland was a good one, especially in the first half, but it was more of a defensive one. This was a game where we could show how we play and really impose ourselves on Greece, and I felt that we did that extremely well. Obviously the opponents are different, but for differing reasons, both games were good.
Now we can set our sights on the Algarve Cup, which is coming up on the horizon. The Algarve is also a big moment for us as we use it well and take so much from it. I am really looking forward to it and I do believe we can keep on building from it, like we have done in the past two years. The group stages are getting harder and harder - and that is great as the challenges are good for us.
Overall, 2013 is a massive year for Welsh women's football, and one we have been looking forward to and working on for the past 18 months. It's exciting and I fully believe it will be the start of massive strides for us. We will be hosting our first ever major Finals and there will be big matches to come, so the Welsh Premier League and our national squads will benefit immensely from this year and I can't wait for it.
