Kim Little reflects on positive end to the season

Following a convincing victory over Brighton on the final day of the season, Kim Little has reflected on the campaign and thanked the fans for their support. 

"It was a really nice day in general, to end the season with a win and clean sheet for Sabs," said our captain after the game. "She obviously had achieved a great game and is leaving the club and then, for Viv to come on and score like she did, there was a really nice feel about that. I'm glad it could end in that way."

There was yet another fantastic atmosphere at Meadow Park on Saturday afternoon and with next season's move to the Emirates on the horizon, Little is excited to see even more development in support.  

"They've always played a role and it's just grown and grown over my time at the club - over the past two years, especially. It's pretty special to watch as someone who's been in the game a long time.

"This next step for us to move to the Emirates as our main home is another special moment and we'll work as hard as possible to do the best on the pitch so that people want to keep coming and supporting us, and hopefully we'll have big attendances at those games. 

"I just want to say the biggest thank you to all our supporters. It really makes every single game we play feel really special."

When asked about Vivianne Miedema, who made her final appearance for Arsenal on Saturday, our captain had this to say: "As a footballer, I think she's a natural goalscorer and is a real technician of the game, which makes it incredibly fun to play with. 

"And as a person, she's passionate, she's bold. She always stands up for what she believes in and those are incredible traits to have as a human."

Despite a positive end to the season and securing wins against every team in the top six, Little knows what our squad needs to focus on in order to challenge for that WSL league title again. 

"I think the games that we've dropped points in are the games that we should be winning if you put us on paper. When we get to those hard away games, we just need to dig in and get the win. We really need to focus on that next year, as well as continuing to focus on our performances against the bigger teams. 

"I think this year we've done incredibly well in those matches but ultimately, if you don't do well in both then you're not going to win the league so that's definitely something we need to improve on for next year.
