Cuss - We got going from the start


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth Women's manager Steve Cuss spoke of his delight, after his side bounced back from last week's cup defeat to Southampton. 

The Cherries hit eight past Newbury to move top of the Southern Region Women's Football League, with five different players getting their names on the scoresheet. 

Cuss was thrilled with the attitude and tempo his side produced in Berkshire, also emphasising the importance of a clean sheet. 

"I'm really pleased with today, as we had a set back last week," he began. 

"The players showed really good character and they showed real determination to put on a good performance, and we ended up with a very good win as a result. 

"We got going right from the start and managed to score two goals in the first ten minutes and that set the scene for the rest of the game in terms of dominating possession and creating chances. 

"Little habits like a clean sheet we're also trying to get into the players, so we're pleased with that aspect of our game today too. 

"The cup competitions had that bit of excitement and they're good, but our priority is the league and it was nice to get back to a league game and pick up those all important three points."  

Cuss also spoke of his delight with the younger members of the squad, after the Cherries ended the game with six teenagers on the pitch. 

"It was great to finish the match with so many youngsters on the pitch and that's a really promising part of the development coming forward," he continued. 

"We've had players from the under-16s that have stepped up and done very well all season and another one joined us today with Larissa White.

"I thought she was excellent when she came on and very unlucky not to score today, but she was involved in a lot of our good play and that's important to us as a football club.

"Hopefully we'll get more coming through and feeding into the women's teams."
