We talk to...Nicky Docherty (Glasgow City)

We talk to...Nicky Docherty (Glasgow City) - 23 Oct 2015 - Women's Football NewsGlasgow City secured their ninth successive Scottish Women's Premier League title on Sunday with a 3-1 victory over Aberdeen. 
 
We talked to City defender Nicky Docherty, one of the unsung heroes in the club's success this season. She admitted that the Championship win was the club's hardest to date following a valiant challenge from Hibernian, and set her sights on the forthcoming Scottish Cup Final when they will be chasing another 'treble': 
 
WSS: Many congratulations on winning the league, does it feel better with each title you win?
ND: Thank you! It feels amazing anytime you win a league title but especially this year knowing the club have secured nine in a row.

WSS: Hibs have pushed you all the way and teams such as Aberdeen have improved, so has this title been one of the hardest to win?
ND: I think all the girls would agree this has been our toughest yet with being pushed right to the end of the season, but that's what you want as a player. You want to be challenged. It is only better for the growth of the game.

WSS: Has it been tough over the last couple of weeks with a virtual title decider, a cup semi final and the Champions League matches before facing Aberdeen?
ND: Yes absolutely! Physically and mentally it has been tough, with sitting in analysis or shaping up on the pitch, from playing midweek games then straight into title deciders. It has certainly been tough on the legs. (games galore!)

WSS: Did the celebrations help the team get over the disappointment of losing to Chelsea in the Champions League?
ND: Lifting the trophy on Sunday was a special moment for the club and as a team. Obviously we were disappointed to make our Champions League exit early on, but we remained positive to finish the season on a high, so winning the League was our aim and we did that. We now focus on the Scottish Cup Final which is in November and will be another tough game.

WSS: This year you also had to change managers during the course of the season, so was it a smooth transition when Scott Booth took over?
ND: The club obviously had to bring in someone whom they thought would help the club grow as we've been so successful previously, and yes it's been a very smooth process. At City everyone wants the same thing - success, so it is easy if a new coach comes in and wants exactly that!

WSS: You mentioned the Cup Final, how determined are the team to complete another treble when you play Hibernian?
ND: To even make it to a Cup final is an achievement, but we would love as a club to go that extra bit further and also lift the trophy to make it another treble. It will be a tough game but we are determined as every other game to win.

WSS: Can you see next season being an even bigger challenge for the team as you chase more trophies?
ND: Yes, each year the teams improve. It's great for the Scottish League to have competition, it also strives us on as a club to improve each and every year.
 
 
Our thanks to Nicky!
