Cuss - We showed great determination


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Women's manager Steve Cuss expressed his delight after his side's 2-0 win against Winchester City Flyers this afternoon.

A late brace from Emma Davis was enough to secure the three points in what was a hard-fought win for the Cherries. 

Cuss emphasised the importance of the three points, as his side maintained their 100% record at the top of the Southern Region Women's Premier League, and expressed how the team can continue to learn ahead of the upcoming December fixtures. 

"I'm really pleased to win the game today," he began.

"The players showed great determination to keep going. We know it wasn't our most fluid performance, but we've not been in that situation before this season.

"I saw another side to ours players today, that determination to keep going and two late goals has seen us get an important three points. 

"We're disappointed with our first-half performance. We didn't move the ball, we didn't pass it as quickly as we normally pass it and we'll look to see if we can find a reason for that.

"The players need to review that as well and look at it to see if we can put that right next week. Us as coaching staff will do the same. 

"Every game is difficult and every game is a challenge. Next week will be another difficult one against Ascot, but we'll look to overcome it." 

Cuss also spoke of his delight for Davis, whose two goals in the final ten minutes, proved decisive at Verwood. 

"Emma's got this really great ability from a coaching point of view in that she can play in any position," he continued.

"Up front, out wide, she's been doing well at left-back too, but we took a chance with 15 minutes to go today and moved her from left-back to out wide on the right.

"She then came up with two goals and we're all delighted for her. She works hard on her game and wants to improve all the time, so really good for her to score twice today."
