NUWFC Reserve Team
Newcastle United Women’s Football Club Reserves welcome Lincoln Ladies Football Club Reserves to the Northumbria University Bullocksteads Sports Centre on Sunday in the FAWPL. The NUWFC Reserves made the long journey to Lincoln in September where Lincoln took all three points.
NUWFC Reserve Team Manager Gary Appleton said “With the games coming fast and furious this time of year our next challenge is against Lincoln City Ladies at home on Sunday and a challenge it will be. This seasons league is a very hard competitive league with good experience teams competing in it. Every week we can see improvements within our young side even if our league position seems to suggest otherwise. Every game of late has seen vast improvements in our performances even though the results have not gone our way the teams is a more solid organised unit and getting more settled every week. With quite a few new players been brought in this year and some as young as 16 / 17 years old we knew this year was going to testing and stretch the players confidence, determination and team work to its limits, but this side of the team has gone from strength to strength and is one of the strongest aspects of the season so far. The coaches have also been tested in keeping team moral high and selecting teams from the massive squads we have available to us , so we can keep everybody happy but on the whole as with the first team I think the players understand the difficulties and have all got behind the club and bought into fact that success and good results takes time. Players take time to settle in, new ideas and systems take time to implement but be patient because time is what this club has plenty of because of the players ages this group of players have loads of time in front of them to improve, develop, gain experience and enjoy what they love doing, in time the results and success will follow, as always.
“KEEP THE FAITH ONWARDS AND UPWARDS”
