We talk to...Rebecca Yeo (Poole Town)
 Women's Football WPL Division 1 South West News - 2 Sep 2017
WPL Division 1 South West News - We talk to...Rebecca Yeo (Poole Town) - 2 Sep 2017 - Women's Football NewsPoole Town made it two wins out of two on Sunday with a 6-0 victory over St Nicholas as they look to adapt to life in FAWPL South West Division One following back to back promotions.
We talked to Poole midfielder Rebecca Yeo, who is understandably delighted with the start her side have made to the season but is also keeping her feet on the ground by insisting that safety is very much the first priority:
WSS: Congratulations on your win on Sunday, did the team's performance on the day reflect the scoreline?
RY: Thank you, we are so proud of how we have started and it shows that all the hard work the coaches and players have put in during pre-season is paying off. I feel the result reflected the game well - we fully deserved to win and dominated the chances. There were periods of the first half where we were passing the ball so well and creating great opportunities but not quite taking them. We always make chances and just need to ensure we take them. We definitely did that in the end on Sunday.
WSS: Two wins out of two with none conceded, is this a better start than you could possibly have hoped for?
RY: It's unreal really. We were so nervous before the first game at Maidenhead. It felt like 100 cup finals all rolled into one!! We have strengthened throughout the squad during pre-season and it showed, not only in our ability to score goals, but in our ability to keep teams who have succeeded in this division out as well.
WSS: As well as the results, how much have you been enjoying the step up to Premier League football?
RY: It's been brilliant. Last year was all about getting promotion and I feel as though in these first two games, we have shown that we belong at this level and hope to go from strength to strength now. It's great to see such great publicity for the women's game, especially at this level - the publicity really helps to encourage more participation from girls and ladies which is fantastic.
WSS: The team is mainly a settled one from last season, have you prepared differently for playing in a higher standard?
RY: To be honest we have just carried on playing and doing the things we did so well last year. Alvin and Josh have created a great mentality within the squad and play a style of football that we love playing. The new additions to the team have complemented the existing squad, so this has really helped as well.
WSS: This week you are in action in the League Cup and it's away to Maidenhead once again, do you think the league match will have any bearing on this week's game?
RY: I think they will be more prepared. We knew a bit more about how they have competed in the league previously but they would have known very little about us, maybe underestimated our capabilities. However, we treat each game individually so are working hard for our debut in the FA Women's Premier League Cup.
WSS: What do you think realistically would be a good season for Poole Town?
RY: Well we have already got more points than the team that finished bottom last year! We are just looking to find our level, we aren't really even sure what that is yet, especially after the start we have made. League safety first, and then see where we end up.
WSS: How good is it for women's football in the Dorset area to have a team playing at Premier League level?
RY: It's an incredible achievement to have a team in such a small county like Dorset that is competing and performing well at this level. We just hope it continues and inspires young players to take up the game and join our fantastic club.
Our thanks to Rebecca!
