Happy Harriet savours title success

Happy Harriet savours title success - 22 Oct 2015 - Women's Football NewsHarriet Scott was all smiles after Reading FC Women clinched the WSL 2 title with a 3-2 win away to Aston Villa on Sunday. 
The full back, who has spent all of her career with the Royals, scored the opening goal as they picked up the result they needed in order to pip Doncaster Rovers Belles to the trophy on goal difference.
"We're just absolutely buzzing, everyone is so happy," a delighted Harriet told Women's Soccer Scene after the game. "It's something that we've worked for since the start of pre-season so many months ago. It was our target at the start of the season and I can't tell you how happy we are at achieving it.
"We're so happy to get promotion and this is the cherry on the top. We'll have a little break, but then we start again preparing for next season and we'll just go again and see what we make of ourselves."
Reading came through a very tough end to the season, first by winning at Everton and then against Aston Villa who are never easy opponents. "Credit to Villa, every time we come here to their home ground they are a good team," said Harriet. "But once we get a goal, we are usually quite comfortable and we scored three - they came back a bit and pushed us till the end but we held out and that is what has made us so happy."
The match was an extremely eventful one for Harriet who, before she gave her side the lead, took a painful blow to the face when accidentally caught by a boot and wore the scars of battle afterwards with a cut on her forehead. "It feels a bit sore, the doctor says I might need stitches on it but it was definitely worth it to stay on the pitch a bit longer and then get the goal," she admitted.
"I meant it, I definitely hit it towards goal but I didn't know it was going to find the corner. When I hit it, I thought 'this could go in' - the keeper, credit to her, got a hand to it but could only help it on in. I thought she might save it but luckily she didn't.
"I'm a bit of a random scorer, I don't score regularly. I'm better in training than I am in games but it's just nice to score in an event like this and help the team out."
Harriet is the team's longest serving player but she has not been at the club as long as manager Kelly Chambers, and she paid tribute to the person who has guided them to their greatest success to date.
"When I came here at the age of 12, Kelly was my coach and she has been here ever since," she smiled. "She's been great for us all season, she's supported us all the way through and made the right decisions and we are really happy that she is with us.
"It means a lot to me as it's my home town and my home club. Since I've grown up they are all I've known and I couldn't be happier."
