We talk to...Natalie Hall (Stoke City)

We talk to...Natalie Hall (Stoke City) - 20 May 2016 - Women's Football NewsStoke City completed the season in the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division with a 4-1 victory over Nottingham Forest, which means they still have a chance of finishing in third place. 
We talked to Stoke goalkeeper Natalie Hall, who reflected on what she feels was a good season for her side and admitted that the club is aiming for better next time around: 
WSS: Well done on the result on Sunday, would you call that a good way to finish off the season?
NH: It was the perfect way to finish the season. Winning breeds confidence, which we can carry forward into next season.

WSS: Did the win at Newcastle the week before restore the team's confidence?
NH: It certainly helped! We've never lacked belief but results had gone against us for a few weeks, so getting a win at Newcastle was vital.

WSS: Can you put your finger on why the run of four defeats happened?
We've struggled with a few injuries; Laura Garside broke her leg, I've been out injured for a little while, a few girls have continued playing with knocks and that has caught up with us unfortunately. Also, in a few games, we were missing that little bit of luck that you sometimes need!

WSS: Football is a team game of course, but did the injury to Laura Garside have a particular effect?
NH: Garside is an important part of team and she has definitely been missed. It's been difficult for her watching but she's still turned up to games and given her all - even from the sideline!

WSS: Is it a little frustrating to look at Sporting Club Albion and Preston North End finishing above you, knowing you have beaten both teams this season?
NH: Of course, but both managed to beat us too so they would probably feel the same if it had been the other way round!

WSS: Third or fourth place in the league, League Cup quarter finalists, County Cup success, an FA Cup tie with Everton and a couple of appearances at the Britannia Stadium, would you say it has been a good season overall for Stoke?
NH: Yes I would. At this stage I'm looking at certain points in the season thinking 'what if' but we've made massive strides forward as a club and the future is bright for Stoke City Ladies FC. The experiences gained this season provide a platform for the club to build upon.

WSS: So are you confident that you can build on this next season and be capable of going all the way?
NH: That's certainly the aim. The club, staff and players are all ambitious and want to succeed so who knows.
Our thanks to Natalie!
