Wildcats get ready for next step

WOMEN'S premier league takes the spotlight today as Woolgoolga seeks to continue its relentless rise up the ladder.

Wildcats host Urunga at Clive Joass Memorial Field and playing coach Kim Batty is confident of turning around the one-goal loss from the previous meeting with the Raiders.

"It was an unlucky game where we had an offside play and a misunderstanding in how to respond," the coach said.

"Since then we've had some great wins and I put a lot of that down to our keeper Alan Bennett, who has worked hard on her craft through specialist coaching.

"In attack we have Emily Nudd potting goals out of nowhere and, of course, Jess Gentle is a machine for us.

"The team seems to have found a winning formula and it's up to us all together to make sure it continues."

The long-serving Wildcat is adamant this is one of the finest groups she has been involved with.

"They are such a lovely bunch of girls and it makes a tough job so much easier," she said.

"While you're out in the middle and sometimes without a guide on the sideline, it can be tricky.

"However, the nature of the players and their attitude plays such a big part and I feel I'm part of the best," Batty said.
