We talk to...Julie Stirrup (Sporting Khalsa)

We talk to...Julie Stirrup (Sporting Khalsa) - 13 May 2016 - Women's Football NewsJust a few weeks ago, Sporting Khalsa had looked to be relegation certainties as they were adrift at the bottom of the Midlands Division One table with only five games left to play. 
However they then embarked on a run of five successive wins, including all of their last four matches which were away from home. On Sunday, they recorded their most impressive win of the lot, 2-0 against Radcliffe Olympic who had started the game chasing the runners-up spot. This result has taken them out of the relegation zone and their fate will decided this week by the last match in the division when Peterborough Northern Star, who need a win in order to overtake them, take on Wolverhampton Wanderers.
We talked to Sporting Khalsa captain Julie Stirrup, who put their winning run down to hard work on the training ground whilst admitting they will all be firmly behind Wolves this week: 
WSS: Well done on a great win against Radcliffe Olympic on Sunday, do you feel that it was a justified scoreline on the day?
JS: Thank you! I think we worked hard as a team and played some good football, creating several chances, particularly in the second half scoring two well worked team goals. Radcliffe put us under lots of pressure towards the end but we defended well and fought hard for a well deserved win.

WSS: Do you think that the confidence gained by the recent winning run was a big help on the day?
JS: Of course, we have played some good football all season but at times lacked confidence to see the game out. I think we have found that now and the run of good form gave us confidence in our own ability going into the game.

WSS: That makes it five wins in a row, four away from home. Were any changes made to the team and tactics or have things generally been the same?
JS: We have just worked hard on the training ground and our coaches have encouraged us to enjoy playing and believe in our abilities as a team throughout the season, I think just something has clicked in the past few weeks. We have worked hard on our defensive shape and that has helped us in the past few games.

WSS: Did you always feel that the team was capable of putting a run like this together?
JS: I have always believed our team was capable of this run of form. We have a really talented group of players at the club and work hard on game play. Our coaches are constantly working on tactics and patterns of play with us. It was just a matter of time before we started putting a run together. It has always been about us working as a squad, not just the 11 players on the pitch and the past few weeks have been squad performances.

WSS: Has the league overall been a strong one this season?
JS: Yes, every game is a tough game. There are no easy games in the league.

WSS: Presumably now, you will all become Wolves Women supporters this Sunday?
JS: Of course....

WSS: If the result from that game was to go your way, what would survival mean to the club and can you build on this good run next season?
JS: It would be a great end to a hard season and would be a massive plus for the players, coaches and club. Of course it would be a fairy tale ending but regardless of the outcome, we have worked hard all season and developed as a club. We have a talented group of players across all the teams and we will keep building on and developing as a club next season and beyond.

Our thanks to Julie!
