It's a big honour for me - Amy
 Women's Football News 14 May 2005
It's a big honour for me - Amy - 14 May 2005 - Women's Football NewsWolves have had a good season in finishing runners-up to Sunderland in the Northern Division and much of their success is owed to the goals of Amy McCann, whose tally of 21 accounts for nearly half her team's goals during the campaign. Amy received the Golden Boot for the division and admitted to Women's Soccer Scene afterwards: "It's a big achievement in my career. I've had trouble with injuries in the past and it is the first season where I have been fit so it's a big honour for me."
Wolves remained in the hunt for the title for much of the season and Amy revealed that a lot of effort had been put in to improve the team's fortunes. "We did look to get promotion this season, we put in a lot of hard work in pre-season and I think we've finished with more points than Liverpool did when they got promoted. So that goes to show how well Sunderland did and congratulations to them, but this is a little consolation for that. We're disappointed but I am sure we'll be there again next season."
A major boost for Wolves was that England international Emily Westwood completed a full season. "She had a tough time with injuries, everyone knows how good a player she is and that's why she is with the England squad now," says Amy. "It's been vital to our success to have Emily fit and available for all the games, so we've been very fortunate."
Amy has forged a prolific partnership up front with Becky Hall during the course of the season and she is quick to pay tribute to the young striker, who is a regular in the England under-19 squad. "I have said that I will dedicate this award to Becky because she's put 90% of the goals on a plate for me," she laughs, "To be fair, she has been sensational up front with me and she's also with the England squads as well, so that goes to show what a player she is as well. I've been fortunate to play up front with Becky this season, we complement each other's games well and we've managed to do well up there."
With Emily and Becky both being recognised at international level, does Amy feel she can follow in their footsteps one day? "It's everyone dream to play for their country," she replies. "It's a bit new to me to get recognition because of injuries and commitment in the past but I am pushing on now and I feel I could do the same next season."
In order to finish top of the list, Amy needed to beat off challenges from established goalscorers such as Melanie Reay, Kelly Dean and Steph Houghton. "Every other year I look at the top scorers for the divisions, those players are up at the top every time and they are again this season, but luckily I've got a few more than them this time. It's a great achievement personally because I'm not used to picking up awards."
So can Wolves go one better next season? "Definitely," replies Amy, "that is obviously our main aim. We'll got about it in pre-season like we did last time and get a few more players in. With having such a good season, I think a lot more players are looking at Wolves and thinking realistically that we are going to be up there so we are attracting players and, with the likes of Emily Westwood and Becky Hall already internationals in the squad, hopefully we will make a big push for it next season.
"We have got a very good youth set-up at Wolves, there are always good players coming through. It's frightening really, because I'm only 22 myself and you get players coming on who are 15 or 16 and are like lightning up front! But that's the way the game is developing and long may it continue."
