HEPPLE: “It’s three points in the bag”

Beth Hepple offered an honest verdict on Durham Women’s 4-1 win over Crystal Palace.

Here’s what she had to say after the clash – in which she bagged a treble to help seal a comprehensive win:

Hepple on her hat-trick…

“It’s always nice to get a hat-trick.

“When it comes about, it’s a rare occasion for me.

“My favourite goal was the free-kick. Happy days.

“But the main thing today was getting three points for the team. “

Hepple on the performance…

“We had chances and we took them.

“I don’t think we played particularly well today, I don’t think we’ll be really happy with the performance, but at the end of the day, it’s three points in the bag.

“It’s a difficult place to come, Crystal Palace are always going to make life hard for us.

“So to win 4-1 away from home after a tough week, it’s hard to complain.”

Hepple on the upcoming winter break…

“The break will probably be a good thing.

“It’s been a busy schedule for the past month or two, so everyone has the chance to go home, see their families, relax.

“We’ll keep working hard. It gives us a chance to work on different things.

“You never really want a four week gap but hopefully we’ll make the best of it.”
