Cambridge United have got off to a great start to the season in South East Division One and their 1-0 win on Sunday over AFC Wimbledon, their seventh straight league victory, sees them replace the Dons as leaders.
We talked to Cambridge defender and vice captain Kayleigh Anne Burt, who praised her team for their performance against AFC Wimbledon as well as setting her sights on a promotion challenge:
WSS: That was a good result for you on Sunday, was the game as close as the scoreline suggests?
KB: Sunday was a great result! The game was very close in the closing stages, however I believe if we had taken our chances in the first half, it could have been a different game.
WSS: Were there any particularly good performances on the day in your team?
KB: I think the team as a whole did their defensive roles well as we kept a clean sheet. It was a solid, disciplined team performance.
WSS: It has been a very good start from Cambridge this season, apart from the new signings during the summer, have there been many changes made since the end of last season?
KB: Well it's a combination of things that we've been working on over the last couple of years, building up to this season as well as a lot of back room stuff. We have a great committee who have been working really hard off the pitch. Our move to Mildenhall Town FC has been a really positive change for us also and they've given us a great home venue to play our football at.
WSS: After losing the first game to surprise package Actonians, the team has gone from strength to strength, how high is confidence within the team right now?
KB: The confidence of the team is at a good level at the moment. We've got a great bunch here, including the staff. The intensity of training is really good too, which is really helping us.
WSS: This week you play at home to Enfield, who are never easy opponents, how tough a game are you expecting against them?
KB: Very true, Enfield has never been an easy fixture in the past but we're looking forward to welcoming them to our home and are definitely looking for three points.
WSS: At this moment in time there looks to be several teams who seem capable of a title challenge, can you see it being a close race this season?
KB: It's a seriously hard league to get out of and a lot of teams will be competing for that promotion spot, and we are one of them!
WSS: What would promotion mean to Cambridge if you can attain it, how ambitious is the club for the future?
KB: Promotion would be great as it will be the highest level the club has reached, and also the highest level some of the players would have played at too. Obviously our aim at the moment is to get out of this league and all focus is on that.
Our thanks to Kayleigh!
