We talk to...Adele Hooper (Larkhall Athletic)
 Women's Football WNL Division 1 South West News - 8 Feb 2020
WNL Division 1 South West News - We talk to...Adele Hooper (Larkhall Athletic) - 8 Feb 2020 - Women's Football NewsLarkhall Athletic moved themselves up the FAWNL Division One South West table on Sunday with a 2-0 win away to Maidenhead United.
We talked to Larkhall striker Adele Hooper, who scored one of the goals in their win over Maidenhead, and whilst admitting that the team was not quite up to full match sharpness after a lack of games in recent weeks, overall she is very happy with the way the season has gone so far for the Larks following a number of changes over the summer:
WSS: Well done on your win at Maidenhead on Sunday, how pleased were you with the team's performance?
AH: Thank you, we played well in areas. But as you can imagine with this being our second game back since Christmas and not playing for seven weeks, we were not at our best. We got the three points and that's the main thing.
WSS: You were on target once again, you must be really pleased with your scoring form recently?
AH: Yeah, I must admit it feels good to be back on the scoresheet as I have not had the best of starts to the season. Hopefully it will continue through to the end of the season.
WSS: So what was it like to actually play a league game, your first one for eight weeks?
AH: It was good! A long time coming, credit to Maidenhead, they gave us a much better game than the start of the season and made us work hard.
WSS: This week you play away to Cheltenham, who you drew 1-1 with earlier in the season, what kind of game are you expecting against them?
AH: It is always going to be a hard game against Cheltenham. I think both teams always want to beat each other. We as a team will be up for the game and we know it will be a battle for 90 minutes.
WSS: The Cheltenham game will be the first of five in fifteen days, including a County Cup semi final, do you think these two weeks could well dictate how the rest of the season will go?
AH: The next two weeks are most certainly going to be tough, five games when you have not been playing regularly will challenge us as a team. I think it will give us a very good idea of how the season will go. However, the league is the most important to us and we aim to finish top three. The County Cup game against Yeovil again will be a challenge for us and hopefully a game where we can prove ourselves as a team what we are capable of.
WSS: At present you are seven points behind second placed Southampton Women and have two games in hand, do you think realistically you can still catch them or even the leaders?
AH: Hmmmm, good question! To be honest, Southampton are a very good team who are most likely looking for promotion and to work their way up to the Women's Super League. However, we have played Southampton twice now, once at home in the cup where we lost 3-1 and away in the league. However, the away game where we lost did not reflect well on us as a team. We had the bare eleven along with key players missing, I think we will give them a better game at home again in the return fixture. Having said this, I personally think Southampton will most likely win the league this year if they maintain their performances.
WSS: You signed a number of new players last summer and with a new manager, how pleased are you with the way the season has gone so far?
AH: Yes, I think it has been a real positive with Jay [Powell] coming in and coaching us. We had a massive squad at the start, but as you know, players leave. We had a great bunch of girls and all fighting for our positions.
WSS: The new arrivals have included several younger players, do you think they are going to be a big part of the club's future?
AH: l really rate our new players that have come in and especially Katie, our youngest member in our team. She has showed her skills, strength and quality when she has played. I think in time she will be regularly starting player and is definitely one who can make impact on the pitch.
Our thanks to Adele!
