We talk to...Katrina French (PILCS)

We talk to...Katrina French (PILCS) - 29 Jan 2016 - Women's Football NewsPILCS pulled off one of the results of the season on Sunday when they defeated Cardiff Met Ladies 3-1 in the semi finals of the Welsh Premier Women's League Cup, to move themselves to within one stage of retaining the trophy they won last year. 
PILCS will be up against Swansea City in the Final for the second year in succession, having won a thrilling match 4-3 last time around.
We talked to PILCS midfielder Katrina French, an inspirational figure both on and off the pitch having batted against a number of knee injuries during her career. She praised her team mates for their semi final performance whilst also looking forward to playing in a Final she was forced to miss last year: 
WSS: Congratulations on a magnificent result on Sunday, was that your best performance of the season so far?
KF: It was by far our best display of the season and all the girls pulled together and worked so hard for each other and deserved to win against the best side in Wales.

WSS: Did you approach the match differently from the league game with Cardiff Met the week before, when you were beaten?
KF: It was totally different from the week before with home advantage on a sticky pitch and we adapted our game better with a lot of credit going to our young manager/coach Richie Jeremiah who was tactically spot on, fair play.

WSS: Were there any nerves in the later stages of the game, after Cardiff Met had pulled a goal back?
KF: We always had at least a two-goal cushion, so I felt quite comfortable and as you'd expect, we had to withstand a lot of pressure in the second half. The girls defended as a unit with one superb save from our keeper Charlotte Hastings helping to keep our clear advantage.

WSS: Now you have to face Swansea City in the Final again, can you see it being another good game like last year's?
KF: I missed last year's final after a knee operation but was there cheering "The Green Army" on, so this will be a special match for me. Swansea will be out for revenge, I know, but for a small club, we have big hearts and will give it our all.

WSS: Ironically this week, you play Swansea in the league, presumably the aim is to build on the semi final and keep the momentum going?
KF: We love the big teams coming to our patch and if we can play like we did on Sunday, who knows?

WSS: A tough start to the league season put you on the back foot, has it been difficult to catch up ground on the leading teams?
KF: Our team has changed with several key players leaving in the summer and recruiting has been difficult as young players are being encouraged to join other clubs, which is all I can say really.

WSS: After winning a major trophy last season, how much would it mean if you could do it again?
KF: Like I said, I missed last year and it hurt, so winning it again for a club our size would be amazing and trust me, we'll give it a good go!
Our thanks to Katrina!
