Wakefield Trinity Ladies’ Kacey Davies has found her feet and is looking to push on as she embarks on her first full season in Red, White & Blue.
Signing from Halifax in the offseason, alongside Lara Dalby and Hebe Forbes, Davies has made an instant impact at the Be Well Support Stadium, starting the majority of this season’s games as well as being named vice-captain.
With a relatively young squad, the 19-year-old has found her feet amongst players of a similar age, increasing the team spirit amongst the ranks, which will hold the side in good stead for the remaining games of the season.
“I’ve really enjoyed playing at Wakefield so far, the girls are great,” Davies explained
“I think I’ve slotted in well to the squad. For most of us, it’s our first year together, which put us all in the same boat.
“The feeling I get at both training and games is extremely positive, it is a pleasure to be a part of this team and I cannot wait for the remainder of the season.”
After a few games without a victory, Trinity came up trumps in their last outing against Castleford, beating our neighbours 8-4 in a tightly-contested game at the Be Well Support Stadium.
This can now be a catalyst for success as we look to embark on the final seven games of the campaign.
“I was over the moon for the girls to get the win. I think this will give us the confidence to go out and perform as we know we can.”
“As much as Castleford made it difficult for us, the team really stood up and was accounted for, showing that resilience, which will prove to be important come the end of the year.
“I know that we can use this to move forward and get that winning feeling once again.”
The tough tests don’t stop there, though, with back-to-back contests against Barrow Raiders on the horizon.
With a big pack, the Cumbrian side will look to use their wealth of experience at the weekend, however, Davies is confident that the side has what it takes to overcome the opposition and put some points on the board.
“As said from the beginning, we will never be out enthused,” she followed.
“A victory is what the goal is and achieving that will be a big help playing the side again in a few weeks’ time.
“I think it’s really important to have the right mindset and be positive. Barrow will be a tough test, but I know the girls are willing to give it 110%.”
You can watch Wakefield Trinity Ladies this Sunday (17th July) as they take on Barrow Raiders at the Be Well Support Stadium (2pm KO).
