Kirk targeting positive end to the season

Bristol City Women head coach Willie Kirk says he is delighted the team got back to winning ways at the weekend.

City Women defeated Sunderland Ladies 2-1 in the North-East, thanks to goals from Millie Farrow and Lauren Hemp.

The Vixens are now level on points with Everton Ladies and three points behind Sunderland in the table.

He said: “It has been an immensely frustrating time for us lately in terms of results, but I am delighted we got the win.

“On another day we may have drew or even lost that game, but for a young team to see out that game like they did was brilliant to see and full credit to them.

“It was fantastic to see Millie get on the score sheet and for Lauren to add another goal.

“Our run-in is fairly tough, but we can beat any team on our day. We still have to play Everton and Yeovil, who are in and around us in the table, we are targeting two wins from those games in particular to finish as high as we can.

It has been a good news week all round for City Women, with Lauren Hemp being crowned PFA Young Player of the year on Sunday.

Kirk added: “Lauren is a pleasure to coach, to see her mature on the pitch and off of it fills me with immense pride. She is constantly looking to improve day in and day out and the award is fully deserved.

“It goes to show that if you work hard and heed the advice the coaches give here, the possibilities are endless. The club prides itself on the pathway of our young players and this is further evidence of the opportunities that the pathway provides.”

Tickets to City Women's remaining games are here.
