More to come insists Preston

Trinity centre, Megan Preston, insists there is more to come as we edge closer to the Betfred Women’s Super League season.

After one victory over our Challenge Cup campaign, Wakefield Trinity Ladies are still finding their feet with a new-look side ahead of the start of the 2022 campaign.

A memorable victory over Castleford set the side up nicely for the remaining cup clashes, however, it wasn’t to be as we fell just short of the mark.

The new season is almost among us, with Trinity starting their campaign on 15th May with a trip to Leigh Miners in the WSL, and as much as Preston is pleased with the start she has made, she says that there is a lot more to come.

“I think I’ve settled in really well, especially when there have been so many positional changes from game to game. I’m really enjoying it.

“I think the transition from Union to League has been a lot easier than what I thought it was going to be.

“The girls and the coaches have been amazing at helping me settle in and learn all the moves and plays.”

A newly-assembled squad for 2022, the side is still finding its feet ahead of a very busy season. With three games down, Trinity Ladies are still preparing for what will be, we hope, a positive WSL season.

Personally, I think I’ve had a decent start to the season, but I’ve still got a lot more to offer and improve on.

Collectively, I think we’ve started well, we’ve not particularly had a set squad and we’ve had changes in positions week in, week out, but I think we’ve coped well with that.

I think we’ve learnt a lot from the games we’ve played, and we know what direction we need to go in to improve as a team.”

The Women’s Super League will take a new format this season, being separated into two groups, offering more opportunities to play against sides currently at your level.

This will make for an interesting season, with starting their campaign in the middle of next month.

“The opening round of fixtures has definitely been a massive learning curve for me. I didn’t realise how physical league was coming from a Union background, but I do think there have been a lot of positives.

“I honestly can’t wait for the first game and to get stuck in. There is a good energy within the team and I’m confident we’ll have a good start to the season.”

Before, Trinity’s season opener, the club will take part in a Nines festival on Sunday, 1st May, which can be followed on our social media accounts.
