Hammers' future optimism
 Women's Football News 17 Nov 2007
Hammers' future optimism - 17 Nov 2007 - Women's Football NewsWest Ham Utd picked up one of their best results of the season on Sunday when beating Keynsham Town 2-0 but defender Carly Roache feels there is still more to come from her team.
Two first half goals saw the Hammers on their way to take the points but Carly told Women's Soccer Scene after the game: "The game wasn't one of our best, but the result counts and we are happy with that.
"It was a tough game - they (Keynsham) have got some very skilful players who are very quick, but we are quite pleased with the way we defended against them."
"I think we played better football last week against Millwall and didn't come up with a win, which is a shame because we deserved one," adds young striker Katy Ling.
Katy scored the first goal in the victory over Keynsham but she took a modest view of her strike afterwards, saying: "I just remember being in the right place at the right time. I had to hit it quite quickly but luckily it went in."
Since winning promotion to the Premier League three seasons ago, West Ham have finished below midway in each of their campaigns in the Southern Division but, following a number of summer signings, optimism is growing of a bright future at the club. "We have a lot of young players and are looking to build for the future," says Carly. "We wanted to get players in to strengthen (the squad) and, after what happened at Charlton, a lot of the girls came from there. It's been good for us to get the young players in and hopefully theyll stay with us for many seasons."
Katy Ling has been one of those newcomers and the very promising 16-year-old has made a good impression at Southern Division level, including some important goals for her new club. "It's been really good since I arrived," she smiles, "the girls have been nice and made me feel welcome. I feel relaxed on the pitch, knowing there is a good team around me."
Regarding the Southern Division promotion race, Carly tips leaders WFC Fulham as the team most likely to emerge as winners. "Coming down from the National Division, Fulham were obviously going to be a great side and they have pulled in a lot more players, so they will be front runners and I think they'll go back up," she says.
As for West Ham's aims, they are setting their sights on finishing in their highest position to date. "I think anywhere in the top five," replies Katy when asked. "We got off to a slow start as we were a new team and needed to gel. If we had started the season again with how we are playing now, I think we'd be right up there. We've held our own against a lot of teams - it's just when we havent got results when we've deserved them, so we have ended up a bit lower than where we should be."
"It would be great to finish in the top four or five, especially after the start we've had, but we're starting to get to know each other's game and are picking up now," adds Carly.
