Cardiff Met captain, Steph Turner, insists the squad are still confident in their push for the Orchard Welsh Premier Women’s League title, writes Ben Evans.
Coming into the final few games of the season, Cardiff Met sit in first place and tied on points with Swansea City, having played a game more. Captain, Steph Turner, promises, the Archers’ squad will not give up “until the final whistle”.
Title challengers, Cardiff Met picked up another valuable win last weekend against mid-table Abergavenny. Met captain, Turner, recognised the opposition's attacking capabilities and said it was “pleasing” to get three points away to a strong side.
With Swansea ahead by just three points, Met are relying on their rivals to slip up in one of their remaining games and Steph says there is “pressure on both teams. We won’t give up until the final whistle of the final game”.
Speaking on the squad performance, Turner has said: “Majority of it has been pleasing. There’s obviously been a couple of games where we haven’t played to our potential, whether that’s in our individual or team performance but overall, so far, we’ve only lost one game so we have been playing well.”
“In terms of the individual girls who have stood out, I think there could be quite a few this season, there’s Chloe O’Connor, she’s come back, just after a serious back injury and I think she’s been unbelievable this season and she’s our current top goal scorer. The likes of Sophie Hancocks, Lucy Finch, they stand out when we play. The girls we signed in January, have also done really well.”
“As a squad, you don’t want to single our individuals, it’s certainly been a squad effort, especially with COVID. It’s been a huge team effort this year.”
