Manchester City ended their Spring Series with a routine 3-1 victory away to Liverpool at Widnes thanks to goals from Jill Scott, Mel Lawley and Megan Campbell.
After the match the Scott spoke of her delight at getting on the score sheet; “Overall, I’m happy. I set a target to score more goals and I feel I’ve done that. That was one thing achieved.”
Scott echoed her managers comments about wanting to finish the Spring Series strongly; “We wanted to win, every game we go into, we want to win. We’ve showed great character and spirit in the Spring Series but we fell a little bit short. Congratulations to Chelsea for winning it.”
Whilst the England International was clearly disappointed now to collect a four trophy in just under a year the midfielder remained focused on the true purpose of the competition; “Now, it’s time to rest up before the internationals coming up over the summer and we’re excited to get refreshed and play again with this squad next season. It’s exciting how much talent we’ve got within this team.”
“I’m very excited. To be selected for a major tournament to represent ypur country is a fantastic achievement. Hopefully, we can go there and do England proud. You don’t want to be in it if you’re not a winner! We’ll go there to win!”
“We’ve got a group of individuals that are very competitive and staff that want to win things. It will certainly be a journey and one I’m excited to go on.”
Asked what City would take away from the Spring series, and how they would use the brief respite, Scott responded; “It gives us time to reflect and look at areas that perhaps are not perfect. Keep working hard and striving to be better, which is what we do every day. We’ve shown we can be better in some areas.”
When asked how the previous 18 months compared to her career as a whole Scott was clearly buoyant about her sides achievements; “You don’t have many opportunities to reflect as a footballer because it’s a case of always looking ahead to the next challenge. It’s been brilliant, it couldn’t have gone any better and Nick will be very pleased with what we’ve achieved. We set out with what was only a dream three or four years ago and to have achieved a lot of things, the FA Cup was a fantastic achievement and one I’ll never forget; to have had those moments with City.”
