Kelsie Burrows believes the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership’s mid-season break will help Cliftonville Ladies chart their progress this year.
The League will pause in just under a month to aid Northern Ireland Women’s prospects at the European Championships and Burrows – one of a host of Reds players hoping to be involved at the tournament – is keen to ensure her Club side is in a strong position when the action resumes.
“Momentum is always important in football but especially this year as the season breaks for the Women’s Euros so it’s important to get as many points as you can before that break,” explains the 21-year-old, who will strive to help Cliftonville maintain their perfect beginning to the Premiership campaign when they host Crusaders Strikers this evening.
“Playing against Crusaders is always a tough test but they have got off to a good start and they are under new management who have had a chance to work on how they will play this season, so all the girls know this will be a tough one.”
