An interview with... Anthea Kaptein (Exeter City)

WNL Division 1 South West News - An interview with... Anthea Kaptein (Exeter City) - 2 Oct 2021 - Women's Football NewsIt has been a good week for Exeter City, who have moved themselves in amongst the leading teams in FAWNL Division One South West following two victories in four days, against Buckland Athletic and Larkhall Athletic.
Midfielder Anthea Kaptein scored one of the goals in the win over Larkhall and told us that the two results have given the team a huge boost and they have serious ambitions to challenge for the title this season:
WSS: it's been a great few days for the team with two big wins, how much has that done for the team's confidence going forward?
AK: It's done absolute wonders for us as a team. After a few tough games and not the points we initially would have hoped, we as a team are growing in confidence with each game that we play. Week by week we become more established, we connect better as a team and we believe that we can be successful in this league.
WSS: How pleasing was the performance against Buckland last Wednesday?
AK: The game vs Buckland was particularly enjoyable, goal difference could define the way the season ends so to get a decent result was important.
WSS: You then took that form into the game with Larkhall a few days later, with most of the damage done in the first half. Do you feel that the team is getting near to its best now?
AK: Our team is going from strength to strength, I don't even think we've hit our peak yet! We have a good balance of experience and young players this season, which really brings a great combination of wise minds and youthful energy.
WSS: Connie Pengelly followed up a hat-trick against Buckland with another on Sunday, having been a substitute both times, is that an indication of the strength in depth in your squad right now?
AK: 100%, for someone as impactful as Connie to be on the bench just shows that we have a lot of talented players in the squad. This allows the management team to rest certain players, give opportunities to younger/newer players and also highlights the versatility within our squad.
WSS: Tthis week you travel to newly promoted Portishead who have started the season well, are they a team you have come across in the past and know much about?
AK: I know Portishead are a very physical team and they've had a great start to this season, however I have every faith that we will get a result on Sunday.
WSS: You were doing well in both of the abandoned seasons, so do you feel that the team is ready to be serious title contenders this time around?
AK: I believe the team are definitely title contenders. We have the depth in the squad, the mental attitude and the passion to be successful, collectively we have to remain focused and take each game as it comes.
WSS: You have had a very young squad at Exeter in the last few years but do you think the summer arrivals give you a stronger looking squad overall?
AK: The youth is the future of Exeter City, they are vital parts of the squad and bring tenacity and drive to the table. However it's all about the balance between the young and experienced, after a few more experienced additions its given us a more well rounded squad and the leadership required in order to be title contenders.
WSS: Who are you expecting to be the main title contenders in your division this season?
AK: I think our biggest competition is AFC Bournemouth ladies, although new to the league they've had a promising start. Although I believe in our next meet we can get the result we deserve.
Our thanks to Anthea!
