We talk to...Joelle Murray (Hibernian)

We talk to...Joelle Murray (Hibernian) - 29 Mar 2014 - Women's Football NewsHibernian have got off to a good start in the Scottish Women's Premier League with two victories in their opening two games, scoring seven times in each. 
Hibs midfielder and Scottish international Joelle Murray told Women's Soccer Scene about her delight with the way they have started and looked ahead to what she believes will be a closer title race this season: 
How pleased are you with the start the team has made this season?
I'm really happy with our start to the season. We have six points out of six and have scored 14 goals so we couldn't really ask for more. We were annoyed to concede against Forfar so to keep a clean sheet against Inverness was very pleasing.

Is it particularly satisfying that you have scored seven in both games?
Seven seems to be the magic number just now! We missed a lot of goalscoring chances against Forfar so although we scored seven, we were slightly disappointed at some of the finishing. However that said, seven goals in any game is very satisfying so to score the same amount against Inverness was very pleasing. We have a team full of goalscorers, some players who are very instinctive and some who have incredible power and accuracy so we all chip in with our fair share of goals.

You have added new players to the squad as well as the young players that are coming through, how have they settled in so far?
The new players we have added settled in very quickly, we are a very welcoming team and look to make new additions feel comfortable as quickly as possible. The young players who were integrated into the squad last year have grown so much and now have a year's worth of SWPL experience under their belts, which sets them up nicely for the challenges they face this season.

Is there real belief amongst the squad that this could be your year in the league?
We have a very talented team and great coaches who guide us and continually push us to do better and improve. For me personally, this is the best and most talented group of players I have played with. I believe we have a very strong chance in the league this year. However we have our feet firmly on the ground and take one game at a time, we focus on us and what we can do opposed to looking at other teams in the league.

Can you see the league being a more open race this year?
I think the league this year will be very open, I don't think the gap between the top, second or third teams will be as big as it was last year.

Who do you think the main contenders will be this time?
I don't want to focus on any one team as there are a few who could potentially win the league. Obviously Glasgow City have a winning mentality and although having lost a few experienced players, still have a very strong squad. Celtic, Rangers and Spartans will definitely be in the mix too so it'll be all to play for.

This week you travel to play Aberdeen and, with due respect to your previous opponents, do you see this as being your toughest match so far?
No disrespect to Inverness or Forfar but Aberdeen will be our toughest opponents so far. They have always caused us problems as they are a very hard working team littered with players who have represented Scotland at various age levels.
