Keynsham Town are in the running to finish in third place in FAWPL South West Division One and, after beating Basingstoke Town 6-1 in the league on Sunday, followed it up by winning the Somerset FA Senior Women's Cup in midweek.
We talked to Keynsham defender Jessie Osborne, who is satisfied overall with the way the season has gone for her club and insisted that they are capable of going all the way next season:
WSS: How pleased were you with the way the team played against Basingstoke on Sunday?
JO: I felt that the result was more important than the performance against Basingstoke considering we had players missing due to injuries. We worked hard as a team to adjust to unfamiliar positions and we were happy with gaining three more points and keeping our position as third in the table.
WSS: Realistically you are chasing after third place, would that be a good season or would it be a little disappointing?
JO: It's always disappointing not winning the league but I feel that we have worked hard as team this season and we had a good run in the FA cup and won the Somerset Cup, so I feel that finishing in third place is a good season for Keynsham and we look forward to stepping it up next season.
WSS: Do you think that the two defeats in your opening three games made it hard to catch up the top teams from that point?
JO: At the start of the season we did struggle with having the two defeats due to players still coming back from injuries and welcoming new players to the team, however I felt this only pushed us and made us work harder into building a strong team.
WSS: You have ended the season with silverware though, winning the County Cup. How tough was it on the night against Brislington?
JO: We have ended the season on a high winning the county cup against Brislington, I felt that on the night we started of strong and relaxed a little too early. I felt Brislington battled well and were a physical side, however we were able to match that and come out on top with a good win and a solid team performance.
WSS: This week you play Plymouth Argyle who are above you in second place, do you see this as a must-win game?
JO: After our last result against Plymouth we are aware they are a strong team and we look forward to the challenge of playing them again and we see every game as a must win.
WSS: This is your first full season at Premier League level, how much have you been enjoying it?
JO: I have really enjoyed stepping up into the premier league, being able to play alongside talented football players has only helped me push and work harder.
WSS: How enjoyable has it been playing alongside Justine Lorton this season, who seems to get better and better as she gets older?
JO: Being able to be a part of Keynsham LFC and being able to play alongside Justine Lorton has only helped me build as a football player, it's always a privilege to play alongside a former international and I hope to continue to learn and improve from her.
WSS: Keynsham have a strong squad with a number of players with WSL experience, if this squad can stay together next season, do you think you can be serious title contenders?
JO: I feel that throughout this season we have only continued to build and form a good solid team with new players joining this season we continue to get stronger and I feel we will be serious contenders for next season and are ready for the challenge.
Our thanks to Jessie!
