Rotherham United are setting the early pace in Midlands Division One this season and their 6-3 victory over local rivals Steel City Wanderers on Sunday was their fifth in their opening six games.
We talked to Rotherham captain Charlotte Spencer and she revealed her delight at the team's start to the season and growing confidence that they can make a sustained challenge for the title.
How pleased have you been with the start to the season for the team?
I am extremely pleased with how the team have been doing. We have made a great positive start to the season and I am confident we can continue to do so.
Have you prepared any differently from other seasons or have new signings made a difference?
New signings have definitely had a huge impact and strengthened the squad. There is a real good sense of team morale and passion throughout the team.
You scored another six goals on Sunday against Steel City Wanderers, is this doing wonders for the team's confidence?
Absolutely! We have four players who are in the top 15 goalscorers for our league and hopefully we can get more of our players on there *cough* Bradie Wild...
Amy Pollock and Nat Shaw have been taking the headlines with their goals but have other players been performing well without getting enough credit?
The whole team have really stepped up a level and are collectively performing better by working for each other. For me, we wouldn't be where we are if it wasn't for our goalkeeper Charlie Whiteley making world class saves and Jess Birtles' relentless defending each week.
You have a busy week coming up with games against Mansfield Town and Radcliffe Olympic, are you anticipating two tough games?
Radcliffe Olympic and Mansfield Town have been close games in the past and playing midweek games can be tough, but we are ready to put in a performance.
Who do you see as being the main challengers in the division this season?
Loughborough Foxes have also made a very good start to the season, with them not losing a match - yet.
How important would it be for the club to win promotion this season if they can achieve it?
To win promotion would be massively important to all of us at Rotherham United Ladies. Our club is growing, and we are looking to keep building on our community, youth and development teams.
