Marrs looking forward to Albion ladies’ big day
Albion ladies boss James Marrs looked ahead to Sunday’s Amex clash with Charlton and admitted: “It’s going to be a big day for us.”
Brighton play their first-ever game at the Amex when they welcome the Addicks for a FA Women’s Premier League Southern Division clash.
The Seagulls are hoping a record crowd for a women’s match will be in attendance and Marrs said: “It’s going to be a really big day for myself and the squad.
“We are fully aware that big days can not always go the way you want but we need to make sure we are fully prepared and we have had some really good training sessions this week.
“The last two sessions have probably been the best in my time here, so we are ready for the game now.
“Everybody has raised their game and it’s no surprise why we are at the level we are at this time.”
Albion currently sit second in the division, having picked up ten wins, two draws and suffered just two defeats so far.
They are level on points with Sunday’s opponents, who top the table, but Brighton have played a game more.
Marrs has been pleased with the season to date but knows his side need to keep their form going to achieve promotion.
He said: “Obviously, you want to be number one and I would have loved to have won every game this season.
“We had a little blip for a brief spell but we are now four games unbeaten and on another good little run.
“For me, it’s about keeping that going and staying as consistent as we can.
“If we do that, I’m sure we will reach our target, which is promotion.”
Sunday’s game kicks-off at 3pm at the Amex. Tickets are free for Seagulls season ticket holders, or are otherwise priced at £4 for adults or £2 for under-18s. Tickets, which can be collected on the day, must be booked in advance on www.seagullstickets.com.
