Wolverhampton Wanderers' victory against Studley in the Birmingham County Cup may not have been their most important match of the season, but for one member of their squad, it was one of the most significant matches of her career.
Becky Hall made her competitive comeback after having been out with a serious knee injury since the end of last season. The former England Under-23 international appeared for the last twenty minutes in the win over Studley in the centre of midfield (pictured) and she told Women's Soccer Scene about her frustrations whilst out injured and fears over whether she would ever play again.
"The last few months have been really tough mentally," admitted Becky. "It's been hard watching from the stand, although I have tried to keep myself busy helping the people behind the scenes with the tea making and stadium announcing!
"When I initially injured my knee, I wasn't even sure what I had done, which was probably the most frustrating thing. I had my operation in October where the surgeon effectively told me I would struggle to ever play again, which only made me more determined to get back.
"I've trained twice with the team and managed to get a twenty minute run out in the County Cup and I was absolutely buzzing [afterwards]. I am nowhere near ready for competitive league action as my knee still can't quite withstand high intensity pressure but I am hopeful that in the new year I will be back and giving my all for Wolves."
To make matters worse, Wolves are currently at the foot of the Northern Division and have sorely missed the 25-year-old, who has played in the FA WSL for Doncaster Rovers Belles as well as Lichfield Diamonds and Birmingham City. Although she has only just set foot back on the pitch, Becky revealed that she was kicking every ball during Wolves' recent 5-2 league victory over Newcastle Utd.
"I followed the Newcastle game on our club's twitter account and until we had a two-goal cushion, I couldn't stop refreshing my twitter timeline!" she laughed.
"It's even more stressful watching than it is playing. It was a fantastic result for us and hopefully that will act as a catalyst to go on for the rest of the season. We are a much better team than our league position suggests."
