Gills Ladies manager Jack Wheeler spoke to the press following Sunday’s FA Women’s Premier League win over Cambridge United WFC at K Sports.
Gills Ladies recorded a convincing 4-1 against top of the table opposition in their last home league game of 2016. Gills took an early lead from an Emma Tune free kick but the visitors levelled the scoreline with an well struck half volley. Gillingham restored the lead before the half time interval and progressed to increase the scoreline with goals from Emily Symonds and Amy Taylor in the second half.
Gills Ladies remain the only team unbeaten in the FA Women’s Premier League South East Divison One.
Wheeler on… the performance: “Absolutely over the moon with the performance, we made sure we focused on that today and was good as a team.They ticked the right boxes in our collectiveness, togetherness and what we asked them to do. If you perform well then nine times out of ten you get the desired effect and the points.”
Wheeler on… the early goal: “Great strike by Tuney [Emma Tune]. Great free kick again. They did well collectively throughout the game, not just for the first twenty but for the whole ninety in my opinion.”
Wheeler on… importance of being in the lead of the game: “We were always very dominant i thought, and always had another gear or two to go. It was important to take the lead before half time to take into the break and bounce on to the second half. I always thought we were going to get our just rewards for how we play”
Wheeler on… the second half goals: “Another two solid goals, very good play across the whole team. It was whole team goals rather than individuals. Really pleased to see that.”
Wheeler on… the three points: “I’m very proud of them today, we just need to make sure we take that into next week and the week after, and it just keeps continuing.”
Wheeler on… the upcoming run of away fixtures: “It’s vitally important to keep the momentum going, it’s going towards the business end of the season. It’s where there’s a difference between the better teams and the teams that go on to win things, where the fine margins start to happen.”
