Davidson Hoping For Big Support As Season Comes To A Close

Nicola Davidson hopes supporters can turn out in force for their final game of the season this Sunday when they are presented with the Scottish Women’s Premier League Two trophy.

Over 200 supporters were at Station Park when they clinched the title on 15th October and Davidson is keen to get more through the gates for their fixture against Jeanfield Swifts.

The side were in action on Sunday as they took on Hearts and after going two goals behind, Davidson was pleased to deservedly take something from the game.

“I felt we were slow to start, it took us to the second half to get started. Our second half was much better than the first, we showed more desire and created more chances.”

Davidson started the game in an unfamiliar left back role before moving back into her usual midfield role with the Farmington captain reflecting on her performance.

She said: “I played the majority of the game at left back then moved into centre midfield, I feel I played alright today and felt better within myself in the middle as that’s where I love to play.”

The opening goal was an unfortunate own goal with Megan McCarthy’s pass back on an uneven pitch bobbling over the foot of Chantelle McKay and Davidson praised the young keeper, feeling she bounced back well.

“Last week I feel Chantelle was nervous and she needed a little more help, especially from the defence. This week I feel she was more confident coming into the game, there was the mistake for the first goal coming so early in the game but Chantelle did well to keep her head up and move on as we had the rest of game to play and I think Chantelle should be happy with her performances.”

The final game of the season will see Farmington presented with the SWPL2 trophy and Davidson is eager to get as many fans as possible up to the ground.

“I hope we get a great turn out again because myself and the rest of the squad really do appreciate all the support. Having the support at the game spurs us all on to want to do better.”

They will face Jeanfield Swifts in the season finale and after two close games earlier this season, Davidson expects the same this Sunday.

She said: “I expect a tough game on Sunday, I think Jeanfield will be up for the game and make things difficult for us but I believe we can finish on a high.”

Sunday’s fixture will kick off at 2pm with admission £4 for adults while U16’s enter free of charge. Entrance at Station Park can be found at the stand side turnstile.
