We talk to...Sammy Hallsworth (Cheltenham Town)
 Women's Football WNL Division 1 South West News - 6 Mar 2020
WNL Division 1 South West News - We talk to...Sammy Hallsworth (Cheltenham Town) - 6 Mar 2020 - Women's Football NewsCheltenham Town finally returned to league action last Sunday with a 1-0 victory over Swindon Town, which kept them firmly in the Division One South West promotion race.
We talked to Cheltenham defender Sammy Hallsworth, who was both pleased and relieved to be playing once again, and is setting her sights on a top three finish at the very least:
WSS: Back in league action at last with a 1-0 win, how frustrating has it been over the last few weeks without playing a league match?
SH: I don't think frustrating covers it! It's always difficult not playing games especially when we were on a good run before this weather stopped all football.
WSS: Was the match on Sunday as close a game as the scoreline suggests?
SH: The game was not as close as it was reported, as a back four we weren't overly challenged, although Swindon made it hard for us to find the back of the net as expected.
WSS: You had played a rather one-sided County Cup match the previous week, has this proved to be a useful game after playing just once in six weeks?
SH: Every game is useful, we use the mistakes we make to learn and develop. Although the game was one-sided we used it as an opportunity to further improve our back line and build play.
WSS: Sunday saw you keep another clean sheet, you must be delighted with the team's defensive record this season?
SH: There have been many chops and changes at the back this season with players coming in and out. We are very happy with our record so far and challenge ourselves to as many clean sheets as possible.
WSS: This week sees you play the first of three games away from home at Maidenhead. You had a close game with them back in September, what kind of game are you expecting this time?
SH: It's going to be tough, but I think both teams are desperate to get back at it. I think like most teams this season, Maidenhead are going to come out strong and try and give us a game.
WSS: The two Southampton teams have occupied the top two positions for most of the season but you still have to play both of them at home, do you feel you are still very much in the title race?
SH: I feel we definitely have to aim high, there are still points there for us to take. Whilst both Southampton teams have been strong, I do think we can still give them a run for their money.
WSS: Last year you just missed out on a top three place, is the minimum aim to go one better this time around?
SH: At the start of the season we set goals to finish as high in the table as possible. We all know it's possible to come in the top three - we just have to get the results.
WSS: The squad is one which is getting stronger and you have made a number of ambitious signings, do you think the club is close to moving up to a higher level in the future?
SH: I think the club is taking the correct steps to move higher we are still very much in a development phase. The hope is that we can build to challenge in those higher leagues.
Our thanks to Sammy!
