Birmingham & West Midlands Ladies are having a fine season in Division One Midlands of the FA Women's National League and their 2-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers Belles on Sunday keeps them in second place in the table and on course for a top three finish for the second season in succession.
We talked to Birmingham & West Midlands midfielder Sam White, who described the result against the Belles as "extremely pleasing" and is aiming for the team to keep progressing in what has been a strong division:
WSS: Well done on a fine win on Sunday, how pleasing was the team's performance on the day?
SW: Extremely pleasing, I thought every player put in an excellent shift including the girls that came off the bench.
WSS: Doncaster Rovers Belles have been in good form in recent weeks, so was it as tough a game as you expected?
SW: Yes, a very tough game, they have picked up some good results since their new manager came in. To come away with the win was satisfying.
WSS: The result has consolidated yourselves in second position, how pleased are you with the way the season has gone up until now?
SW: We have predominantly been consistent throughout the season, I think we have performed well collectively so far.
WSS: What were your ambitions at the start of the campaign, did you always think you could challenge after finishing third last season?
SW: My ambitions were to push and challenge myself as much as I can, to help bring my experience of the league to the team, hopefully I have positively contributed. The club as a whole has vastly improved - they have come a long way in such a short time. The goal was always to improve on last season's finish, so far we are on target but the season is not over yet, so we have to stay focused.
WSS: The division itself looks to be a strong one this season with a number of teams doing well, has it seemed that way to you?
SW: Yes, there are a number of teams doing really well. No game in this league is easy - it shows how strong the division is becoming.
WSS: At the moment, we don't know when the season is likely to resume, but when it does, do you feel that anyone has a realistic chance of catching Wolves?
SW: Wolves are proving to be a formidable team - although the league is out of our hands, we must concentrate on ourselves, keep focused and ensure we finish the season as strong as we can.
WSS: Whatever happens though, the team has built on last season's performance, does that augur well for next season?
SW: Absolutely! With the great support we have from all the coaches along with the club, it all builds well towards next season to keep moving forward.
Our thanks to Sam!
