Manager hails ‘exceptional’ Vale ladies side

Hamil Road Ladies team have been hailed as “exceptional since day one” by manager Martyn Cooke after the Port Vale offshoot continued their strong start to the season.

The players have been exceptional since day one and their attitude and application has been fantastic…

The ladies side are currently in fifth place in the Staffs County Women’s League with five games of the season played.

Hamil Road have won four out of five games including an 11-2 defeat of Lichfield City and a 7-1 win over Leek CSOB.

Manager Martyn Cooke commented: “The players have been exceptional since day one and their attitude and application has been fantastic. On the whole the results have been good but more importantly so have the performances. The girls are playing some great football and all the credit should go to them for what they have achieved so far and hopefully we can keep on improving.”

Hamil Road Ladies were initially developed following a successful open day in June. Twenty-one players attended the event which lasted for three hours and included a presentation outlining the vision for the club and a free one hour coaching session.

Captain Gemma Hulme was one of the players who attended the open day and she is looking forward to productive season with Hamil Road. She commented: “After attending the open day I realised that this was the team I wanted to play for. The coaches were friendly and approachable and I enjoyed the training because it was varied and a great learning experience. The girls who joined the team all seemed really friendly and we have all integrated well together as a team. I feel that we have a very talented bunch of ladies with a lot of potential and I think that we can achieve a lot this season!”

Hamil Road now face tough fixtures against Newcastle Town Ladies and YMCA Ladies in their upcoming two league fixtures as they look to continue their positive start to the season.
