Barron-Clark relishing big games to end league campaign


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Molly Barron-Clark is relishing the prospect of the Cherries’ pivotal final two Women’s National League Division One South West fixtures this season.

Steve Cuss’s side are set to visit third-placed Moneyfields on Thursday (7.45pm kick-off) before a potential title-decider at current league leaders Exeter City on Sunday, May 5.

The Cherries know a pair of wins would see them finish as unbeaten champions of the division, as well as sealing promotion to the third tier.

And Barron-Clark, who played for Bristol City in the 2011 Women’s FA Cup final, insisted the toughest fixtures are the ones she relishes the most.

She told afcb.co.uk: “It’s always good to be in the top-quality games, it’s what you live for.

“You don’t just want to play the easier games and get all the goals. It’s nice to get those games to build your confidence and figure out certain game plans but you live for the tough ones and those are the ones you learn most from.”

Barron-Clark, who made more than 100 appearances for Portsmouth before joining the Cherries in 2020, is set to meet a number of familiar faces against Moneys this week.

“It’s always a tough game when we come up against Moneyfields. There are a few players we know, a few players I have played with,” she said.

“Some of them I looked up to and some I’ve learned a lot from.

“They are always good to play against. It’s good competition, a good battle and it will be exciting to see what the outcome is going to be on Thursday.

“It’s going to be a vastly competitive game and it will be exciting. We are going to go away, put the work in and really knuckle down to get the ins and outs of how they play and what we need to do to get those three points.”
