13/01/2013 - Today as we prepare to play Crystal Palace Ladies we thought it appropriate to talk about pre-match prep and superstitions. From speaking to the girls its fair to say there are some weird and wonderful ideas ranging from eating raw jelly cubes to falling out with her mum pre match to physc herself up.It has been really intersesting to see how many of the girls have these pre-match routines and how long they have kept them a secret.
Others also include taping her laces to her boots to stop her from falling over, eating a banana bang on 15 minutes before the match and religiously putting an item of kit on first. Now that this is all out in the open I’m sure we will all be looking across the changing room at each other, waiting for one of us to do our quirky superstition.
Thank you for taking the time to read our blog which will now be done on a monthly basis. I hope you have found it interesting to have a little insight into the ladies team.
Until next time….
