It's just nice to win it - Trudy

It's just nice to win it - Trudy - 14 May 2005 - Women's Football NewsTrudy Williams has been one of the leading goalscorers in the country for a number of seasons but in this campaign, the experienced striker has proved to be the most prolific as them all as, for the first time, she has finished as top scorer in the top flight with 20 goals. "It's excellent, I've won the award in the Southern Division before but it's just nice to win it now in the National Division," Trudy told Women's Soccer Scene. "Reaching 20 goals is an achievement as it hasn't been done for a few years."
Bristol Rovers had been amongst the top teams during the course of the season before finishing fifth and Trudy feels that the season might have been even better. "If we knew at the start of the season that we would finish in fifth place, only a couple of points behind Birmingham we'd have taken that but with the way that the season started we're a little bit disappointed that we didn't finish fourth," she admits. "We tailed off a little bit from December onwards, we didn't play for about a month and a half in the Premiership and that took it out of us, but it's still a good season in Gary's (Green) first in charge and considering we finished third from bottom last year it's a great achievement.
"I think we probably need another striker, there's only myself and Traffs (Claire Trafford) at the moment. We could do with a couple of big girls, whether as a central defender or in the centre of midfield, who are six foot plus - we just haven't got that at the moment so that would be nice."
So of Trudy's 20 league goals, were there any that stood out for her? "A goal at Leeds was quite an important goal at the time, it was 0-0 and I managed to slot one round the keeper and within about 60 seconds, I managed to make it 2-0 with a lob from about 30 yards and they were probably important goals at that time of the season. There was a good header against Arsenal but to be honest any goal really - I remember scoring against Leeds at home when the ball was actually perched on the line and I slid in, kicked the ball and the post and it ended up in the net, so it doesn't matter how they go in as long as they do!"
Trudy revealed that she had been contemplating retirement but feels that she can go on for another year. "Obviously I'm not getting any younger," she laughs. "But they've all been telling me that now I have won a boot sponsorship (as part of the award) I have got to do another season. I felt at the start of the season that it would probably be my last but now it's gone so well I feel that if I can do it this year, I can do it next year so I think I'll be back, hopefully terrorising defences!"
