Lucy Quinn - 'When you get your opportunity you have to try and show what you can bring'

Lucy Quinn believed there was room for improvement after Spurs Women lost 3-0 to Manchester City in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League on Sunday (4 April).
A fourth minute Becky Spencer own goal along with Janine Beckie and Caroline Weir converting chances either side of half-time gave City the three points.
Despite the result we came out in the second half fighting, which was epitomised by Esther Morgan winning the ball back in injury time despite losing a boot in the process.
Nevertheless, Lucy remained unhappy with the result, but was pleased with our determination in the second half and was happy to get an opportunity to showcase her skills.
“It was a tough game,” Lucy told us after the match. “They’re a team with so much quality and we had to try and show in spells what we’re about with difficult circumstances, like not having a lot of the ball. But the players we have in and around the squad are more than good enough to compete. We were positive in spells but there are lots of improvements that we need to make."
On Esther's late challenge, Lucy continued: “That’s typical Esther, she didn’t stop, it didn’t even faze her [losing a boot], just a straight recovery down the line and one of the reasons why we love her so much. What a great addition to the squad - even with only one shoe!
“It’s tough, every player wants to play, but at this level the squad is filled with talented players and that’s how it is. When you get your opportunity you have to try and show what you can bring to the squad and hopefully the girls and the staff were happy with what I was able to do today.”
With an FA Cup clash against Reading up next on Sunday 18 April after the international break, Lucy added: “It’s always a good competitive game against Reading, we showed that recently in the draw, but the FA Cup is obviously a fantastic competition where neither team has anything to lose so it’s going to be a good game.”
