Jets women are far from down after losing their opening NPLW match on Saturday – in fact the mood is ‘very positive’ said Zozia Sen.
The squad has this week been working on areas where it needs to improve and preparing for Sunday’s visit of Gold Coast United to Wolter Park at 3pm.
“I think it has been positive, very positive,” said the midfielder, “the girls turned up ready (to train) and that’s what we needed.
“We kind of expected the first match to be tough. It was basically our first full 90-minute game. We only did one pre-season game (due to the weather and cancellations).
“Heads were not down at the end and we haven’t ignored what happened. We’ll learn from it.
“Going forward we have to keep learning, working and trying to improve.”
Jets’ have a young, new-look squad this season with the focus on development and giving more opportunities to players from the under 18s.
Zozia is, in fact, one of our more experienced players having been in the NPL and NPLW for the best part of six years with Jets, UQ, Western Pride, Capalaba and Mitchelton.
“A number of the girls we have now are just coming into the NPLW and are young,” she said “it takes time to get experience.
“Logan had players who had been in the NPL a long time, so it was a learning curve for everyone here.
“I don’t know much about Gold Coast United. I know they have strikers who can find the back of the net, they have speed and some experienced players.
“It’s another another opportunity for us.”
Jets' Under 18 Girls play Gold Coast United at Wolter Park at 1pm, with the women at 3pm.
