Hammers Le Havre signings look for top season

Keeper Courtney Brosnan reckons the Irons are heading into a good season despite a defeat at Arsenal in Sunday’s opening game.

The Hammers were beaten 2-1 by the reigning Barclays FA Women’s Super League champions but were seriously unlucky not to get at least a draw after hitting the woodwork three times in the second half.

And speaking at https://www.whufc.com/news/articles/2019/september/10-september/brosnan-we-showed-what-were-capable-against-arsenal Brosnan said:”“It was a good performance

“In the second half, we really showed what we’re capable of. We settled into the game and had a couple of chances.

“We were the better team in the second half. We just couldn’t capitalise. There’s a lot of positives to take from that, and also a lot of things to work on.


“It’s a tough welcome to the WSL, against such a good team to play. But we’re playing such strong competition. It’s great to get out there from the start and play the best team. We just need to improve from here.”

Martha Thomas scored a fine headed goals and the signing from Le Havre where she and Brosnan played last season looked an superb addition.

The stopper added: “Martha has done great and I think she’s going to do great things this year.

“She’s really dangerous on the ball and she’s got a great work ethic. I think she’s going to be a really big player for us this year. I’m really happy for her, getting her first goal.”

The Hammers will be able to get a very different result against the other north London side – Spurs – when the two sides clash in the first ever Womens’ game at  the London Stadium on September 29.

Tickets are available through the club site and are priced at £1 for season ticket holders and Claret members and £2 for adults who can bring five kids with them for free.
