Manly Vale women’s Premier League team travel to Lionel Watts Oval to take on on Sunday, and Vale coach Tony Bruzzano said his team will “have to turn up and bring our top game with us”.
“We aim to get better with every training session and every game. If it doesn’t work, we break it down, find the problem, fix it, and move on. And when it does work, we enjoy it!
“The girls are really looking forward to playing Wakehurst this weekend. They look to be travelling well – three wins in their first 3 games. We always know we are in for a tough game against Wakehurst, and especially at Lionel Watts, they are always hard to beat!”
Bruzzano said his team don’t know the make-up of the Wakehurst squad.
“It looks like they have added a few new players to their squad and they have a new coach [Greg Chipman]. So it’s a little bit of the unknown preparing for the match.”
Vale, meanwhile, have won two, lost one in their first three games, a start Bruzzano said has borne “mixed results”.
“It’s been a little bit of a stop-start season due to the weather. But hopefully we can start settling into a bit of a rhythm with regular football. We’re focussed on playing a simple game. And that continues this weekend.
“We don’t have anyone in particular scoring our goals, they are all shared. At the back we’ve welcomed back goal-keeper, Lauren Scaramuzza, after a year off to an ACL injury.” Bruzzano said.
