Shaw wants hard work from Belles

Head coach Zoey Shaw says the Belles have a lot of hard work to put in before their next league game in the FAWNL Division One Midlands.

Sunday’s game with Burton Albion was postponed earlier on in the week meaning the Belles won’t be in competitive action until Sunday December 8 when they face an away game at The New Saints Ladies, and Shaw is keen to ensure they’re all ready despite the lay-off.

“The girls know that they have a lot to work on between now and our next game, we’ve had a good chat, and now we have to start picking them up over the next couple of weeks before we head over to face TNS,” she said.

“Its’s frustrating for us that we don’t seem to have a good run of games at the minute, to have three games in three months isn’t easy for us to find any form at all, we’re looking at friendlies now between that to try and keep us up to speed.

“The girls are all on board with what we want to do, they’ve taken responsibility for what happens once they cross the white line on a Sunday, we’re going to put in some good hours over the next couple of weeks to prepare.”

The Belles will have gone almost a month by the time they head to face the Welsh side in the league, and Shaw is looking to get a couple of potential friendly games sorted to keep her side up to speed.

“We just have to keep the girls focused with those friendly games and in training and make sure they’re ready to go, we want to keep working hard on what we’ve been doing in training and hopefully we can pick up that win we’ve been looking for,” she added.

“We want to get some games locked down in the next couple of weeks so we can put in to practice what we’ve been working at, tying things down in our new strategy and just to build up the confidence of the girls.

“Having this time off can take its toll in a way, it can almost make things feel relaxed at times, but we want to make sure everyone is on it when it comes to the next league game, so we can’t wait to get back into action.”
