We talk to...Fiona Worts (Leicester City Women)

We talk to...Fiona Worts (Leicester City Women) - 11 Sep 2015 - Women's Football NewsLeicester City Women have got off to a great start in FAWPL Midlands Division One, having won each of their four opening matches and scoring 22 goals in the process. 
We talked to City striker Fiona Worts, who praised the team for the start they have made so far and revealed their determination to go one better than last season's second place finish: 
WSS: It's been a very strong start by the team this year, presumably the team is full of confidence right now?
FW: Obviously we've hit great form so far, winning games and scoring goals, which are going to do wonders for anyone's confidence. However we are under no illusions. We know have to go into every game ready to fight for the three points, we've still got plenty of games ahead of us so have to continue working hard and not let ourselves get complacent.

WSS: Have there been any significant changes since last season, any new players to help strengthen the squad?
FW: We have the addition of a striker coach, Rich Green, which allows the attacking players more specific coaching and a lot more time practising in front of goal - with the goals we've been scoring so far, it seems to be paying off. Kayleigh Hillier, Lauren Impey, Chantelle Robinson, Rebecca Carnelley and Helen Busby are all new additions to the first team squad, and have all been vital in our successful start to the season.

WSS: On Sunday you had a great win for the second successive week against Rotherham, who are otherwise unbeaten. Did you feel that the team's performance was as good as the scoreline suggests?
FW: There are much weaker opponents than Rotherham, however we played our passing game and they couldn't handle it. It was a compliment to us that they resorted to foul play tactics, and we capitalized on that.

WSS: You've scored an impressive 27 goals in five games (in all competitions), is it encouraging to see several different players chipping in with goals?
FW: Definitely! It's great to know that players from all areas of the pitch can hit the target. It makes us way more dangerous as a team to know that we don't have to rely on a couple of players to get the goals. What I think is equally important is that our strikers: Helen Busby, Becky Knight and myself, are still a big influence on the goal difference; which is always a promising sign.

WSS: This week you have another top of the table clash away to Radcliffe Olympic, what sort of match are you anticipating against them?
FW: There is a great professional rivalry between Radcliffe and ourselves as we chased to promotion last season. They will be more than hoping to close the gap between us so no doubt they will turn up eager for victory. We both have the ability to play great football so it should make for an exciting game.

WSS: You went very close to winning the league last season, is there an extra determination to go one better this time?
FW: Certainly. We've been pushing for promotion for a couple of seasons now and each time got very close. This season though I think we want to win the league more than ever. Our manager, Jonathan Morgan, really put us through our paces pre-season and is continuing to do so now the season has begun. He's introduced fresh new tactics and has been extra vigilant. All the girls are working extremely hard to try to put us in the best position we can to move up at the end of the season.

WSS: Do you feel that it is particularly important that the team gets up to the top division as quickly as possible?
FW: Not necessarily. Obviously you turn up to every game with the desire to go home with three points, and that shouldn't change whatever league you're in. But I don't think the pressure to push into the Super League as quickly as possible is necessary. I know we're ready to move into the league above and after that we should continue to work hard, iron out any flaws and maintain the same determination to win all our games. With that, as we develop, we should naturally rise up the leagues.

Our thanks to Fiona!
