Grace Neville on Charlton, the Lionesses fans and 'that' Goal

March 8, 2019

Written by:

 

 

Neville on the goal that secured the Lionesses' first win of the season - "Having it be the last few minutes of the game made it all the better, as we were pushing for a goal to secure a win to the next round of the cup. It felt amazing to be the one who put the ball in the back of the net, however I couldn’t have done it without the resilience of the team behind me. The win boosted our confidence which really showed in the next few games."

 

 

On her team mates and how she feels she has settled into the squad - "I’ve settled very quickly and everyone made me feel welcome from the get go which was one of the factors that made Millwall so appealing to me: which was general morale considering the results and willingness to go the extra mile to succeed, as we are still a young side with lots to learn. I’ve played both right back and centre back and felt very comfortable in both positions."

 

 

 

 

The mood in the Lionesses camp after the recent victories - "On behalf of the whole team, it feels great to be back to winning ways and to prove that we are capable of competing with top teams around the country. As mentioned before, we are a young team and we feel like we have a lot to prove, so the past few wins have really boosted everyone's confidence individually and collectively. We are know beginning to believe in ourselves which is something that perhaps when I first joined I didn’t see as much as I do now."

 

 

Grace's view on next week's game with Charlton and the memory of former Charlton youth player, Jordan Dawes - "Our focus has now switched to Charlton and we are working on how best to approach the opponent. Hard work in training, understanding each individual role in and out of possession and also nailing set pieces. We will go into the game with lots of confidence and determination as we feel as though we can yet again prove ourselves and make a statement: which is not to underestimate Millwall Lionesses.

 

 

 

 

A few of the girls on our team knew Jordan on a personal level and have found it difficult to process her tragedy, but have remained at training and fixtures with a brave face and a positive outlook. It reminds us all how lucky we are to be able to do what we love everyday with a smile on our faces. We will ensure that going into the next game we are reminded of Jordan Dawes' memory and hopefully make her proud."

 

 

And finally, the wonderful Millwall Lionesses fans - "We love the Millwall fans, it really does lift the atmosphere of the whole stadium and also raise our confidence as a team. Our fans have been extremely dedicated to us and we feel as a team has helped us with momentum of the game at times. On behalf of the girls at Millwall we would like to say a huge thank you to all of our fans and please keep coming down to support us, as it really does make a difference."
