Forfar Farmington clinched the SWPL2 title on Sunday with a 5-1 victory over second placed Motherwell in front of a crowd in excess of 200 at Station Park.
We talked to Farmington striker Robyn Smith who was delighted with her team's success whilst also insisting that the team were determined to finish off the season on a winning note and prove themselves in SWPL1 when the time comes:
WSS: Congratulations to you and to Forfar Farmington on winning the league title on Sunday, how does it feel to have done it with three games to spare?
RS: Thank you! Winning the league was our main aim and It's great to now have the luxury to go out and play the remaining games with no pressure as champions elect. Although we want to finish on a high and take all nine points.
WSS: You did it in style by beating your nearest rivals 5-1 in front of a big crowd, what was the performance and the occasion like?
RS: We got off to a great start, stuck to the game plan and exploited Motherwell in the first half. The second was more controlled and we did what we needed to make sure we were champions come the final whistle.
WSS: After having gone down from SWPL1 at the end of last season, was it always the team's aim to go back up at the first attempt?
RS: Absolutely, we knew we could too. Farmington is a club with SWPL1 history and deserves to be up there and now we can represent the region again at that level.
WSS: You also had a great run in the SSE Scottish Women's Cup this season, reaching the semi finals, was that a welcome ‘distraction' from your title challenge?
RS: As we were on good winning runs and performances, we didn't really see it as a distraction. The Scottish Cup means a lot so we just wanted to keep the runs going.
WSS: There's no game this week but you return to action the following Sunday with a trip to EUHV, presumably you will want to win the last three games to round a successful season off?
RS: We have a great record this season home and away - it's something we want to keep up!
WSS: Have there been any unsung heroes in the title win, people who do a lot of work on or off the pitch but don't get the recognition they deserve?
RS: All the staff. From the football staff, to Lee who does all the media and our chaplain Susan. There's a lot done beyond their job descriptions but Farmington is a club built on the family feel and everyone gets stuck in for each other.
WSS: Will there be an extra determination from the team next season to establish yourselves at SWPL 1 level?
RS: I would say so. We didn't prove ourselves last time. The squad has changed, developed and relish the challenge to go again and the work to be ready starts now.
Our thanks to Robyn!
