Solihull fell to their second defeat of the season on Sunday against top of the table Wolverhampton Women on a tough afternoon.
The result means they currently sit at the bottom of the table but with two resilient performances under their belt, captain Abbie Taylor remains optimistic for what the team can produce this season.
“The team fought really hard which showed with a much-improved performance on last week’s game from the whole team,” said Taylor.
“Unfortunately, we faced a strong, organised Wolves team who came out with the three points.
“We take a lot of positives from the game and will continue to develop including our younger players who put in a very good performance all over the pitch. We will also address the areas that need to be worked on in training ready for our cup game next week.”
Pip Harmison is also positive about the games to come, reflecting that this young Solihull team will continue to grow as the season wears on and look to better their performances week on week to achieve their aims.
“Considering we are a very new team and have players still away on holiday, I thought we dealt with the situation fairly well. The first-half brought many positives; we coped well with Wolves’ possession and kept them quiet.
“It wasn’t until a flukey goal and a lapse in concentration caused us to go into half-time 2-0 down. The second-half was tough, Wolves showed their experience and were very clinical with their chances.
"It is always frustrating to lose by such a big margin, but we know our aims and will continue to grow as the season wears on.
“We will learn from Sunday, train hard on Thursday and go again on Sunday!”
Solihull face Brighouse Town Ladies in the cup on Sunday hoping to get off the mark for the new season and instil some confidence into the side after a hard result in the league.
