Cuss - We just kept going


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Steve Cuss has shared his delight following AFC Bournemouth Women's 6-1 win over Ascot United this afternoon. 

Becky Miles scored a hat-trick, Rachel Anderson a brace and Rosie Eden also got on the scoresheet in what was a fine afternoon on the road for the Cherries. 

Manager Cuss was pleased with his side's application in tough conditions throughout the afternoon. 

"It was a really good performance," he began. 

"I thought that we started strongly, scored the goals that we did in the first half, we couldn't quite match that in the second half, but overall I'm really pleased with result and performance. 

"They were really tough conditions out there today. While we were playing on a nice 3G pitch, the driving rain and strong winds made it really difficult.

"I think we coped with that well and we just kept going through those really difficult patches when it was coming down so heavily.  

"We tried to be on the front foot and take the game to them, create as many chances as we can and, as I said, I thought we did that particularly well in the first half. It was also nice for Rachel to come in for her first start and get two goals." 

With one game to go before the Christmas break, Cuss emphasised the importance of continuing his side's good run, which now stretches to seven unbeaten in the league. 

"I think we had out little target here of continuing to get the three points week on week and just looking at that individual game.

"We've got one more before Christmas now and that'll be another tough game, but we'll try and work hard during the week and be ready for it." 

The Women are away to Warsash Wasps in the Southern Region Women's Premier League next Sunday, with kick-off 2pm and entry completely free!
