It hasn't sunk in - Lisa

It hasn't sunk in - Lisa - 26 May 2015 - Women's Football NewsLisa Giampalma admitted she still hadn't come to terms with scoring the goal which won her side promotion to the FA Women's Super League. 
 
The experienced midfielder, who is Sheffield FC's longest serving player, struck in the second minute of injury time to give them a 1-0 victory over Portsmouth in the FAWPL Championship play-off match at Stratford.
 
"It hasn't sunk in and I don't think it will for a few days," Lisa told Women's Soccer Scene afterwards. "It's been amazing but we've won that league for the past two years, and again this time, so it's time we moved up now.
 
"To go from bottom of the league [in the early days] to top of the league is amazing and to get the goal as well just tops it off."
 
The goal came as Lisa ran through on goal and rounded Portsmouth goalkeeper Courtney Trodd before finishing off, so what was she thinking when in that situation? "I need to score, have to score, there's no other option," she replied. "It was looking like the game was going to extra time and we didn't need that, there were a lot of tired legs out there.
 
"Portsmouth were really good and gave us a great game. It was a great advert for the league but luckily we got the goal and we're going up."
 
Now Sheffield have Super League football to look forward to and, if circumstances allow, the possibility of playing their famous local rivals, Doncaster Rovers Belles.
 
"You'd never have thought that women's football would be at that level a few years ago," said Lisa, "but now it's moving forward quickly and for us to be there is just fantastic.
 
"We've played [Doncaster] a lot in pre-season games, so to play them in the league would be something. We know a lot of the players and have a lot of friends there, so it would be a good rivalry."
 
Lisa reserved special praise for goalkeeper Claire Wallhead who made two outstanding saves towards the end of the second half, whilst also admitting it had been a tough battle to win the league this season.
 
"I thought they were in but [Claire] pulled off some amazing saves," she smiled. "But she has done all season though, she's been our player of the season. I don't know how she does it, I don't know how she gets to them.
 
"We've had lots of injury problems - I broke my arm, we've had ACL injuries, but we've somehow struggled through, won games very closely and we've got our reward now."
