Lewes caused a stir on the opening weekend of the Premier League season on Sunday with a stunning 7-2 victory over West Ham Utd.
We talked to Rookettes midfielder Katie McIntyre who had a fine match and created five of the seven goals her team scored. She was delighted with the team's performance on the day and feels that the club is in good shape to improve on their seventh place finish last season:
WSS: Congratulations on a great result to start the season, do you feel that the result reflected the performance overall?
KM: I believe it did, we controlled the game very well, create allot of chances and always looked threatening on the attack.
WSS: However you must have felt differently when you went two goals down early on?
KM: Going two-nil down within 20 minutes was a real shock to us, as I felt we were the better side, but I always had confidence in the team that we could pull something back and get back in the game.
WSS: Did you do anything different to turn the game around from that point?
KM: I think we all knew on the pitch that we had to react and quickly, so we started being more aggressive pushing forward and it just showed the belief and character of this team from being 0-2 down to 3-2 to 4-2 and then eventually winning 7-2.
WSS: The club has made a lot of new signings including the likes of Kim Stenning and Tammy Waine, does the squad feel a lot stronger this season?
KM: Yes, it does feel stronger as we have more strength and depth in all positions and competition to be in the starting eleven is as tough as it's ever been.
WSS: This week you play Cardiff City Ladies who are usually amongst the front runners, what sort of match are you anticipating?
KM: Cardiff have always been a very good side, strong, organised and well drilled. But we have worked hard over pre-season for games such as this.
WSS: Lewes have done very well ever since reaching the top flight, what do you think is a realistic season for the club this time around?
KM: We have done well since being in the Southern prem. The last few seasons, we haven't finished as well as we wanted, but we have clear goals and objectives for this season which this squad can achieve.
WSS: Having seen two South Coast teams win the title in the last two seasons, do you think the potential is there for Lewes to emulate that sometime in the future?
KM: Absolutely, this club is only growing and becoming a positive player pathway to one of the top flights in women's football!
Our thanks to Katie!
