BOSWELL TARGETING AMEX RETURN

18 May 2017

The defender is hoping to return from injury this Sunday.


Brighton & Hove Albion defender Charley Boswell is hoping to put a lengthy injury absence behind her and feature in the club’s FA WSL Spring Series clash with Sheffield FC at the Amex on Sunday, kick-off 1pm.

The defender has yet to feature in this Spring Series campaign, but is now back in contention for the club’s final game of the season this weekend.

She said, “I’ve been struggling with my right knee for seven months. It was a wear and tear injury which kept me out for longer than expected, but I’ve been back training for three weeks and I’ve played for the development squad.

“I’m now back training with the first team set-up, which is brilliant, so fingers crossed I’ll be involved.

“For those who played at the Amex last time [against Charlton last season], it’s nice that the club is still backing us and have given us that honour again.

“We’re excited about it. Hopefully it will be a good result for the big occasion.”

Albion’s longest-serving player is expecting a closely-contested match against a side sitting one point and one place below them in the table, and believes both teams have adapted well since gaining promotion from the FA Women’s Premier League.

“Obviously I’ve been watching from the sidelines a lot but, from what I have seen and from what I have heard, it is has been a massive new challenge.

“We have come up against new teams and it has been a much better standard, but I don’t think we have done badly.

“We don’t know a lot about the teams we are playing and Sheffield will be the same.

“We are quite close in the table and Sheffield were the team who went up the year before we did.

“They have held their own at this level quite well, so hopefully we follow in their footsteps.

“We can take a lot from what they have done and it would be a great confidence boost for us if we could beat them.”

Boswell also played in Albion’s first-ever fixture at the Amex against Charlton back in December 2015, and is hoping for a similar result, but better playing conditions.

“Hopefully the weather is a bit better this time!

“We gave a great account of ourselves that day and there was a fantastic atmosphere.

“For me it was just an amazing opportunity to do something I never thought I’d be able to do.”

Tickets are priced at £8 for adults and £4 for under-16s and over-65s. The club are also offering a family ticket for groups of two adults and two under-16s for just £20.
