Our day in the sunshine - Tracey
 Women's Football News 26 Mar 2011
Our day in the sunshine - Tracey - 26 Mar 2011 - Women's Football NewsA delighted Barnet manager Tracey Kevins described her side's Premier League Cup Final win as the club's "day in the sunshine" and revealed that they had planned for penalties before the match.
"As a group of players, we decided to target the League Cup from the start," she said. "I don't think the players are too surprised, apart from the way we did it - having to play with ten players for an hour. It was a target of ours and we were hell bent on getting it. It was about digging in deep and sticking together and there's no greater achievement after putting in the stint they did tonight.
"It's all about preparation, we came here on Monday night and measured out the pitch, then we measured out our training pitch to the same size and dimensions.
"We also made a decision to send a coach to watch Nottingham Forest when they played Watford a few weeks ago and she made copious notes on where their penalties went. Those notes were with our goalkeeper last week and she studied them and knew what she had to do. Cherie's a good goalkeeper but it wasn't a fluke that she saved the kicks, she knew exactly where they were going and that's why we've got to where we are now.
"We practised penalties on Tuesday night - and Sally missed - and she went to the park yesterday and practiced.
"Without a doubt, as a coach, it is my greatest achievement but it doesn't stop there. We are aiming for an artificial 'treble' - the League Cup, the FA Cup and survival in the league."
Nottingham Forest manager Danny Johnson paid tribute to his players after they came so close to landing their first major trophy. "We did very well and the girls did themselves very proud.
"We moved the ball quicker in the second half although we didn't create as much as we would have liked, but that happens.
"We can't dwell on this - we are five points behind Sunderland in the league and as long as we have a mathematical chance, there's still hope."
