Port Talbot Town are getting their season back on track in the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League and claimed their second victory in succession on Sunday when beating Llandudno Ladies 1-0 in the only match in the league to survive the bad weather.
We talked to Port Talbot captain Vickie Stratton who was pleased with the win against Llandudno, which keeps her side in sixth place in the table, as well as looking forward to what she believes is a very positive future for the club:
WSS: Well done on the victory over Llandudno, do you feel that yours was a deserved win on Sunday?
VS: Yes, i feel we deserved the win. Although we definitely should have won by more.
WSS: Your match was the only one in the league to beat the weather on the day, were the conditions difficult at all?
VS: The conditions were just cold! The pitch was actually fine.
WSS: Laura May Walkley got the winning goal for you against Llandudno, with her WSL experience, how important a signing has she been for your club?
VS: She's a good asset to the team. Her knowledge and experience is great for us.
WSS: The team had to adjust to a management change in the middle of the season with Hayley Williams taking over, has she made many changes since taking charge?
VS: Not so much changes, but her presence alone, management, and approach has been amazing for all of us. Hayley taking over has by far been the best thing to happen to PT Ladies.
WSS: The Llandudno win was your second in a row after previously beating Caernarfon, do you feel that the team is growing in confidence once again?
VS: Yes, I believe so. We're definitely gelling more as a team and understanding each other's strengths and weaknesses. What helps is that Hayley knows us all very well as players.
WSS: This week you travel to Caldicot Town who you narrowly beat earlier in the season, what sort of game are you expecting against them?
VS: Potentially a physical game. They will probably be confident, especially following our last meeting. However in saying that, we have learnt from our mistakes when we played them and have focused on our game plan for Sunday.
WSS: You are looking on course for a mid-table finish if you stay where you are now in sixth, would that be a satisfactory season overall?
VS: Due to the bad start we have had this season, I would say yes. It's not been a great season for us by any means, however if we remain up then we have a lot to focus on for next season. We're a strong team both on and off the pitch. Unfortunately we just haven't shown our potential enough this season.
WSS: Once again Port Talbot came close to reaching a major Final recently, this time getting to the Welsh Cup semi finals, do you feel that the club is close to getting up amongst the top teams in the league in the future?
VS: Definitely, if we are able to maintain strength in numbers within the team, there's no doubt that we will be pushing for top three next season and for the seasons to follow.
Our thanks to Vickie!
