We talk to...Laura Bright (Cambridge Utd)
 Women's Football News 30 Oct 2015
Cambridge United picked up their first league victory of the season on Sunday when they won 1-0 against Enfield Town in South East Division One, after having drawn half of their opening eight matches. 
We talked to Cambridge midfielder Laura Bright, who scored the only goal of the game, and she admitted at being relieved at finally getting the first win whilst insisting that they can maintain their climb up the league table in the weeks to come: 
WSS: Were you delighted or relieved at picking up your first win of the season on Sunday?
LB: Both! It's been a long time coming so there was relief at finally picking up our first three points of the season but also delighted to move out of the bottom two.

WSS: Was it a nervy end to the game as you hadn't yet won a league game before then?
LB: I think there are always a few nerves when seeing out a game with only a one goal advantage but we had defended well all game and I was confident we'd get the result.

WSS: Are you confident the team can build on this result and keep moving up the table?
LB: Yes. We put in a good performance against Crystal Palace the week before and were the first team to take points off them this season, and then backed that up with another good performance against Enfield. We've been unlucky in games up to now so hopefully this marks an upturn in our fortunes and we can start to pick up points more regularly.

WSS: Did the draw with Crystal Palace give a boost to the team's confidence?
LB: Definitely. The week before we went out of the FA Cup, which was a difficult thing to overcome, but we knew we had to regroup quickly going into the Crystal Palace game. Training in the lead up to the game went really well and all the players and staff responded in the right way to the FA Cup result. We know we are a good side and putting in the performance we did against Palace and being the first team to take points from them has definitely given us a boost going forwards.

WSS: Has it been frustrating so far this season, as every match you've played has been a close one?
LB: It's been really frustrating. It tests the character of the players when you go a number of games without a win but we've shown over the last two games that we're more than capable of getting results against anyone in the league.

WSS: This week you make the trip to play Old Actonians, do you think you can keep up your improving form against them?
LB: That's the plan! We've been working hard in training to maintain the momentum we're building and we know we need to consistently pick up points on Sundays. It will be a tough game but we're starting to hit form and back-to-back wins is the main focus going into Sunday. There's a renewed confidence in the team after our last two performances and we're keen to build on that and start moving up the table.

WSS: It has been an eventful summer with the link to Cambridge United, do you see a bright future for the club?
LB: Absolutely. I think the link with Cambridge United shows our intentions as a club and hopefully it's only the start of our journey. We're lucky to have a great group of staff who are instilling a new level of professionalism into the club and offering player's high quality coaching to support the good work the committee is doing behind the scenes. This season hasn't gone to plan so far but we feel we've turned a corner over the last two weeks and will be looking to build on that for the rest of the season. The infrastructure of the club is better than it's ever been and it's only a young side which bodes well for seasons to come.
Our thanks to Laura!
