After ten straight defeats to start their league season, Poole Town got themselves off the mark on Sunday when they came from behind to beat Brislington 3-1.
We talked to Poole's vice captain Kitty Norman who, whilst pleased with the result in bearing Brislington, is also confident that the team can build on this first victory and move themselves up the table in future weeks:
WSS: Congratulations on your first win of the season on Sunday, what is your main emotion after getting off the mark?
KN: Thank you! I think my emotions were happiness and relief. We have been working so hard as a team and to finally get those points was amazing!
WSS: Was it an even more pleasing result for you, given that Brislington had scored first, early in the second half?
KN: I was immensely proud of the team. They could have let their heads drop after that goal but they kept fighting until the end and played some great football. Everyone played their part and it showed through the final score.
WSS: Did you always feel confident of winning the game after Sacha Paynter scored your third goal?
KN: I was confident in my team to battle until the end but you can't stop until that final whistle blows. When we played Brislington last season, we were winning 2-1 and in the last 25 minutes they managed to score another four goals. We all knew we couldn't let our guards down again.
WSS: Was your County Cup win against Merley Cobham Sports the week before a confidence boost for the team, as well as your narrow defeat to Cheltenham just before that?
KN: Absolutely, every week we keep growing stronger as a team and really working well together. The final scores are starting to show it and that is a huge confidence boost for everyone.
WSS: This week, you face a tough trip to Exeter City but then have vital games against Maidenhead and Brislington after that, do you feel you can build on this victory and lift yourselves up the table?
KN: I can't even describe how excited everyone was about our win on Sunday. I know they are going to carry that victory and confidence into the rest of the season and hopefully work our way up.
WSS: With one exception, your defeats this season have not really been heavy ones, has this been a little more frustrating that you haven't been far off picking up points?
KN: I think the biggest thing that is getting us through that frustration is the fact that we are seeing progression in the team. Our defeats last season were a lot worse, so it's good to see that we are improving and giving them a good run for their money. The team has so much talent and our coaches have been working hard to utilise it all.
WSS: Just just four points cover the bottom four teams in the table, after Sunday's result, so are you more optimistic that you can lift yourselves off the bottom and away from any possible danger?
KN: I don't want to jinx but I definitely think we can. As a team, we are training harder and pushing ourselves even harder during the games.
WSS: If you can keep yourselves up this season, are you confident that the club can establish themselves in the division in the future?
KN: The whole team, including the coaches, have so much passion for the game and the level we are playing at. I think we all want to show this division what Poole Town is made of!
Our thanks to Kitty!
