IT WILL be a first away game for the Horsham Saints Female Football League side on Sunday.

Coach Matt Taylor said the team is excited to travel to play the Warrnambool Blues,

“The girls have all been planning how and when they’ll get there,” he said.

“We haven’t had to do anything as coaches because they have organised things among themselves to make sure everyone gets there.”

The Saints have registered two wins in the first two rounds after quickly coming together as a team.

Round three will see the side focus on working hard on its two-way running.

“I encourage them to run forward hard but then they need to be mindful of playing defensive as well,” he said.

Ruby Wynne has been training well and Taylor suggested she is ready to have a big impact on Sunday.

“Macy Fuller has also been putting in the hard yards and it could be her time to shine,” he said.

“We’ll be giving them both key roles this week.”
