This week has probably been the best in Lewes Ladies FC's history as they claimed their first national trophy when beating Huddersfield Town 4-0 in the Premier League Plate Final.
We talked to Lewes midfielder Katie McIntyre, who has spent a number of years with Rookettes and is understandably delighted with the club's achievement of winning the Plate and also their form in general since the turn of the year:
WSS: Many congratulations to you and Lewes on a fantastic result on Sunday, how does it feel to have lifted a major trophy this season?
KM: It's a fantastic feeling, I've been at this club for many years now and to lift a national trophy with this team, this club, is an amazing feeling.
WSS: You kept a clean sheet against a prolific forward line and took your own chances well, was it a game plan which worked perfectly on the day?
KM: We were aware of their threat and our game plan was to not let them have any time on the ball and I think we showed that. We won individual battles all over the pitch and by winning those battles, we created our chances and finished them off.
WSS: Georgia Bridges has been taking headlines because of her two goals but do you think it was an all round team effort?
KM: Georgia was brilliant on Sunday and deserved her MOTM award but yes, the whole team were fantastic. The work rate and determination on and off the ball is what won us this trophy.
WSS: Could you possibly have envisaged this happening after you lost on penalties to Cambridge United in the First Round of the Premier League Cup back in September?
KM: That was a tough loss for us but we responded well, so I was confident in the run to the final that we would win it.
WSS: The team has also done well in the league since the turn of the year, has there been a particular reason for the upturn in form?
KM: I'd agree, the turn of this year we have defiantly improved. I think as a squad, we all knew we shouldn't be near the bottom of the table and that we are better than that, so in each game we've played since the confidence and determination to win has grown week by week.
WSS: This week it's back to the league and a home game with Coventry United, is it going to be easy for the team to get their feet back on the ground for this one?
KM: I think so! I mean, don't get me wrong, there is still a buzz around the club after that final win but we have a job to do on Sunday and we want to win that game.
WSS: Now the club has a taste of winning a national trophy, do you think it can inspire them to go on to better things in the future?
KM: I hope so, the club as a whole is improving year by year and with the players we have and the talent coming through, the foundation and development squads, the future does look great for Lewes Football Club.
Our thanks, and congratulations once again, to Katie!
