We are looking forward to showing what we can do against Chelsea - Estcourt

Bristol City Women midfielder Charlie Estcourt says she is glad pre-season is done ahead of the opening game of the WSL 1 season tomorrow against Chelsea at Kingsmeadow (12:30pm).

 

The game will be streamed live on the BBC Sport website.

Estcourt, 19, joined from Reading on loan in the summer and is in her second stint with the club after initially joining on loan during the 2016/17 WSL 2 promotion campaign.

The Welsh international is fully aware of the threat that Spring Series champions Chelsea will bring, and is looking forward to the challenge ahead, insisting the squad are looking to make a statement in front of the BBC Sport cameras.

Speaking for the first time on her return to the club, the midfield star describes herself as a busy player, who can hopefully bring a lot of goals to the team.

She said: “I’m really enjoying it, I can’t wait to get out there tomorrow. It feels like we have been in pre-season for a very long time but now the time has come to show what we can really do. The girls are so welcoming here and it’s great to be back.

“Chelsea are Spring Series champions, so it will be a massive challenge away from home, but we are certainly up for the challenge and we can’t wait to show the league what we can do in front of the BBC Sport cameras.

“I like to think I’m a busy player in the midfield, getting myself around the pitch and being involved in as much as I can. Doing that enables me to turn, drive and commit players in order to create opportunities for the team and also score myself.”

Estcourt recently returned to the club from Kazakhstan, where she was involved as Wales opened their World Cup qualifying campaign with a one 1-0 victory in Astana.

The Welsh midfielder described the delight with the opening victory: “Everyone was really excited to get out there and start a new campaign, I really enjoyed the trip and it is a fascinating country.

“It was a great result for us, it is a hard place to go away from home and we were delighted to be coming home with three points.”
