We talk to...Amy Fisher (Mossley Hill)
 Women's Football WPL North News - 23 Jan 2017
WPL North News - We talk to...Amy Fisher (Mossley Hill) - 23 Jan 2017 - Women's Football NewsAfter losing their opening nine league games, Mossley Hill are staging a fightback in their season and a 4-0 victory over Tranmere Rovers on Sunday has lifted them off the bottom of the table for the first time this campaign.
We talked to Mossley Hill defender Amy Fisher, who described the win as their best performance of the season whilst still holding the belief that her team can successfully avoid relegation:
WSS: Well done on a very important win on Sunday, was that the best the team has played so far this season? 
AF: Thank you, I think it's the best the team has played when it comes to a full 90 minutes. We've had games where we have played well but unfortunately for only 45 minutes and in the league we are in, you need to be playing well for ninety. 
WSS: Did the team go into the game thinking that only a win would do?
AF: We know as a club that we are in a situation where we need points. We knew from the previous game against Tranmere  that we could achieve three points, we just needed to go out there and work for each other, which is what we did. If we didn't win, we knew the fight to stay up would have been an even tougher challenge.  
WSS: That makes it two wins and a draw during the last five matches, has there been a specific reason for the upturn in results?  
AF: I wouldn't say there's a specific reason to the upturn in results. As a club we have always worked hard in training, the results just hadn't gone our way for whatever reason. Obviously after the first win, the atmosphere changed and it was nice to go in the changing rooms finally feeling we got the result we deserved. 
WSS: How tough was it on and off the pitch during the early stages of the season?
AF: As a club we had a tough start to the season, going into pre-season with no manager or backroom staff.  Also a huge number of players leaving, meaning a number of players joined. We basically had to start from the beginning, we always knew it wasn't going to be easy and it hasn't been. We stuck together and the team is still looking to continue to build - we have had new players sign throughout the season, meaning we are all fighting for our shirts in the squad. It's a nicer situation to be in than the start of the season. 
WSS: Is it therefore a little frustrating that there is no game this week, to build on the Tranmere result? 
AF: Yes it is frustrating, but we have big games that we need points from, so that is now our focus. We will still be training on Sunday to make sure everyone is still focused, to give us the best chance to get as many points possible in our next fixtures. 
WSS: How big is the belief that the team can successfully stay up this season? 
AF: We know we are in a tough situation but we have a great bunch of girls and we will work for each other until the end of the season. We know we are good enough for the league, we just haven't shown that in most matches. Our manager and coaches keep us training hard and motivate us, none of us want to go down. So as a club, we are all still believing that we can stay up. 
WSS: If you can avoid relegation this season, how confident are you that the club can prosper in the future?
AF: 100%. We started the season with around six players from the previous season. We now have a squad of over 20 players, the club and team is getting stronger each week. If we do avoid relegation then I am certain that the following season would be a complete turnaround.
Our thanks to Amy!
