Norwich City produced one of the best results of the round in the Premier League Cup on Sunday with a 3-2 victory over Queen's Park Rangers of the Southern Division.
We talked to Norwich midfielder Paige Shorten who was full of praise for her team's performance as well as setting her sights high for the team, for the season ahead:
WSS: Many congratulations on an excellent cup win on Sunday, how pleased are you at beating a team from the division above?
PS: It was a great win on Sunday for Norwich City Ladies; we knew it was always be a tough fixture going to a well organised QPR side but as a team we are all very proud to make it into the next round of the FA Women's Premier League Cup.
WSS: Was it nervy in the last ten minutes after Kyla Love had put you 3-2 ahead?
PS: As a team we did very well to keep the lead at 3-2, the last thing we wanted was to lose our lead and head into extra time and penalties.
WSS: Were there any good performances on the day from any of the players in particular?
PS: The squad that represented Norwich on Sunday looks very promising for the 2016-17 season, every player involved put in 100%. Fiona our goalkeeper was outstanding in goal, along with our captain Kate Parsons having a great presence on the pitch. I wish I could talk about every player because the team performance was superb.
WSS: Your reward for winning is a trip to Gillingham, presumably you will approach that match with confidence?
PS: We have played Gillingham the past few seasons, it has always been a very tight game as we know they are organised and have great talent in their team. However we have made some great signings this season to go along with our team from last year and I can definitely see this game being an end to end fixture with anyone coming out as winners.
WSS: Norwich have got off to a good start this season, has much been changed during the summer?
PS: Norwich have had a great summer and pre-season in preparation for the new season. Scott Emmerson has rejoined Norwich City as Head Coach for the 2016-17 season, which has created a great buzz for our club. We our also receiving a lot more publicity from Norwich City FC and social media which helps the promotion of the female game become more visible.
WSS: On Sunday you take on Cambridge United in the league, what are your thoughts ahead of that game?
PS: We are really looking forward to Cambridge on Sunday, we trained out Norwich City's brand new 3G pitch at Colney on Wednesday in preparation for Sunday and the girls loved the environment of training at the men's facility. We know we can't take Cambridge for granted on Sunday as they have made some signings in the summer but I feel really confident about Sunday's game.
WSS: What do you reckon would be a good season for Norwich City?
PS: We have a great environment set in place for Norwich City Ladies for this season which is creating a superb atmosphere for all players involved, we are keen and hopeful that we will strive to be in the top three for the 2016-17 season.
Our thanks to Paige!
