In his latest column, Liverpool Ladies manager Scott Rogers explains why he has high hopes for the season ahead and speaks about his search for a new striker.
I would like to start by offering congratulations from everybody associated with Liverpool Ladies to Caroline Weir, who was named Scotland Women’s Player of the Year for 2016. It’s fantastic for Caz, she played very well last year and we always knew we were signing a quality player with great potential. It’s now about making sure we keep developing that potential because she is still a young player who is getting better and better. From our point of view, it’s nice that she has been recognised for the hard work she put in during 2016 and the work we have done with her. For Caz to be recognised is great news for the club.
It’s been a busy time off the pitch recently as we have managed to extend the services of Martha Harris, Satara Murray and Danielle Gibbons. It’s good that we can tie them down to new deals. Martha didn’t play much last year because of injuries but she has come back for pre-season training and I have to say she has been fantastic. She looks really sharp and back to her best, so it’s about keeping her going in the right direction as Martha is such an important player for us.
