Chorley have had a good start to the season in Northern Division One of the Premier League and on Sunday they reached the First Round of the F.A.Women's Cup with a 10-1 victory over Tynedale.
We talked to Chorley attacking midfielder Vicky Coope and she praised the team's performance against Tynedale whilst insisting that they are there to stay in the title race in the league:
Playing against teams from a lower level is rarely very easy, so what kind of performance was it from the team against Tynedale?
The team were strong and remained consistent throughout the game. We were focused and prepared to play our own game at our own standards. Clinical, thorough and enjoyable!
Was it good to get away from the league campaign and focus on another competition?
Yes, we have suffered injuries of late and needed a break from the league. Cup action is always exciting!
Gabriella Difalco had a great game in front of goal, scoring five, how pleasing was it to see her amongst the goals like that?
I have always known that Gabby has a brilliant strike in her locker and she has shown her abilities in previous games and training. She was clinical and she took her opportunity in that position well.
You are now at home to Rotherham United in the next round, two teams going well in their league and a Lancashire-Yorkshire clash! How much is the team looking forward to that?
We are very much looking forward to the fixture. The FA Cup first round is thrilling and I am sure both teams will be excited. We played them a few seasons ago in the same competition so I think the ladies and management will be looking for a similar victory!
In the meantime, you make the long trip to Chester-le-Street this week, what sort of game are you expecting against them?
A very tough game. They had an unusual result last week in the cup, but generally are a strong team. The fixture is always a good one.
Do you see it as a vital game in looking to getting back to winning ways in the league?
Absolutely. We are aiming to take away three points and nothing less. We have had our wobble and hope to take the cup form into the league.
Overall, have you been satisfied with the way things have gone so far this season?
Yes, more than satisfied considering the small size of our squad and injuries of late, we have performed very well. We have a team of talented and committed players who always put 100% effort into each game.
Can you see your division staying close throughout the season?
We will definitely be up there! We have been close for two seasons on the trot so we hope to go one further!
