Not for the first time, I covered two matches in one day on Sunday 23rd of September. My first was Spartans Reserves v Hearts at Ainsley Park, which was followed by a short journey to Leith Links, where Musselburgh travelled to play local side Leith Athletic.
One match was billed as a league decider and this one was the battle at the opposite end of the table; nevertheless, there were no shortage of goalmouth incidents and desire to win.
As always, I selected a player for the Stewart First Aid Training Player of the Match and as is often the case, it was a difficult decision. After careful analysis of the match I decided on Lucy, who had put in a fair shift on the left wing, scoring one and creating many others. Her skill on the ball with either foot was impressive and her ability to pick out a player with a long pass was commendable.
After the match, I had the opportunity to chat to Lucy and get her thoughts on the game.
Name: Lucy Brown
Time at Musselburgh: First season
Previous Clubs: Hibs Girls
Home Town: Edinburgh
Favourite food: Apples
Team Supported: Hibs
Tell me your thoughts on today’s match – did you deserve the victory:
Yeah I thought we played some very good football today. It was an exciting match especially towards the end when Leith were chasing an equaliser. Thankfully we held on.
How about your own performance: Apparently it was quite good I was happy with it to be honest, I thought I played well but it was the team effort that mattered most. I am happy to take the three points and the POTM award
If you hadn’t won the POTM, who would you have given it too: I would have given it to our team captain to be honest. She played brilliantly today.
SWFitba: I have to apologise to Lucy for failing to bring the correct trophy with me – I got caught out by covering two games and thus was a trophy short. I presented her with one of the smaller ones from earlier in the season and will post the Stewart First Aid Training award out on Thursday.
Many thanks for taking the time to speak to SWFitba and I wish you all the best for the future.
