We talk to...Gemma Fraser (Chesham United)
 Women's Football WNL Division 1 South West News - 16 Mar 2019
WNL Division 1 South West News - We talk to...Gemma Fraser (Chesham United) - 16 Mar 2019 - Women's Football NewsChesham United are having a good season on their return to the FA Women's National League and Sunday's 3-0 victory over Brislington leaves them in third place in the Division One South West table.
We talked to Chesham striker Gemma Fraser, who scored twice in the win against Brislington, and she feels that the experience gained on their first season back in the league will stand them in good stead next time around:
WSS: Well done on a good win on Sunday, was it a pleasing performance as well as a result?
GF: Yes, very happy with the result, we coped with the difficult conditions and capitalised on having the wind behind us in the first half by getting two early goals. Our defence was solid in the second half and we were pleased to keep another clean sheet.
WSS: Brislington narrowly won a close game when you last met, did that give the team a little extra determination going into the match?
GF: We knew we didn't play well in the first game, I think we were still finding our feet in the league and we are always looking to better our results.
WSS: That makes it eight wins in ten matches in all competitions, has there been any particular reason for the team's good form in recent weeks?
GF: We had a difficult start with a lot of away games and having to adjust to the level of competition, now we have settled and started to play our own way which has helped us find our form. We've been working hard at training and the majority of our team love their fitness. Chesham's pitch is great too, which allows us to play our football!
WSS: A defeat for Southampton has given you an outside chance of challenging for a top two place before the end of the season, do you think that realistically you can do so?
GF: We thought we would struggle to compete with the top couple of teams this season, so we aimed to compete with the chasing pack.
WSS: This week you make the long trip to Devon to play Buckland Athletic who are just below you in the table, what kind of game are you expecting against them?
GF: A wet and windy one! The last game was a great one and we managed to steal a win, but they are a decent side on a good run of form - with the long trip, we will be happy to come away with any points.
WSS: April is set to be a tough month for you with home matches against Cheltenham, Southampton and Keynsham. Do you think those games will be a good indication of how the team has progressed this season?
GF: Yes it will be a good of test of our character and fitness. We have also got a County Cup Final against MK Dons, so we will have our work cut out to maintain our performances between now and the end of the season, but that's just another challenge that the players will be up for.
WSS: This is of course your first season back in the league after promotion, has it gone better than expected or did you always feel you could do this well?
GF: Personally, I thought we would be fine, we have been disappointed with some of our results this season. We have a good squad of players who are committed to do well, I guess at the moment we are pleased with our position, but we know we have a tough run ahead.
WSS: Are you confident though that you can build on this season and be amongst the main challengers next time around?
GF: Definitely, we are a funny side, we will set goals and objectives individually and as a team, but we will prioritise loving playing and enjoying our football. This seems to bring the best out of us, we would be keen to bring in a few new faces and push on next season!
Our thanks to Gemma!
