Chester-le-Street Town have got off to a good start this season and their win against Crewe Alexandra leaves them with six points from their opening three games.
We talked to Chester-le-Street midfielder Anna Collin, who is very satisfied with the way the club has started, whilst setting her sights on a challenge for a possible top three place:
WSS: How satisfied were you with the result against Crewe Alexandra?
AC: It wasn't the best team performance from us on Sunday but we were really pleased to get our second league win of the season.
WSS: Chester-le-Street to Crewe is an extremely long journey, but did the win make it feel a lot shorter when coming home?
AC: It was an extremely long day for us on Sunday but the three points made the journey worthwhile. Plus the team quiz makes those long journeys fly over!
WSS: That makes two wins in the opening three games, are you pleased with the way the season has started?
AC: We've had a good solid start to the season so hopefully we can build on that and continue picking up points. We had a good preseason too so we're feeling confident.
WSS: The team ended last season with a good run of form, were you confident of keeping it going at the start of this season?
AC: We were really disappointed with our poor start last season but we knew we had the potential to finish strongly. We've strengthened our squad and worked hard in pre-season and fortunately we've been able to keep the momentum going.
WSS: You didn't have a game this week but return to action next week with another long trip to Blackpool Wren Rovers who you beat 4-1 on the opening day, what sort of game are you anticipating there?
AC: I didn't actually play in the first game of the season against them but the girls said that we played some good football. However, it's always different away from home and it's another long journey for us. Blackpool have picked up a few points since we beat them so it should be a good game.
WSS: Where do you think the team can finish realistically this season?
AC: I'm hoping we can finish in the top three. We have a lot more depth in our squad this year so if we're missing players due to work commitments, we can still field a strong side.
WSS: The North East is a strong area for women's football in this country. Are you confident that in the future, Chester-le-Street can move up alongside the likes of Newcastle and Middlesbrough at the very least?
AC: Over the last few seasons, we've proven that we can hold our own against the likes of Middlesbrough and Newcastle but it's more difficult to attract players as fewer people know about us. We're working hard to get our name out there using social media etc so hopefully we can keep attracting new players to our club.
Our thanks to Anna!
