A SHOULDER injury may have released one of the most potent attacking weapons in women’s soccer.
Regular Albury City keeper Brogan Broadway said the injury had forced her to take a more active role in the field this season — with immediate affect.
The midfielder was a constant threat in a high-scoring win against Melrose and will be a key to their chances in the clash with Albury United tomorrow.
“It was simply a matter of a shoulder injury and it wasn’t healing quickly so I decided to take a step out of goal,” Broadway said.
“I really like playing in the field but it is a bit tough watching the keepers — but then there are probably some midfielders gritting their teeth when they are watching me.”
United coach Daniel Foden admitted he had plenty of work to do after a 3-0 loss to Boomers last week.
“We got a bit of a hiding last week,” he said. “The plan was to soak up the pressure until half-time and attack in the second half.
“But we conceded with seconds left in the first half and again in the first few minutes of the second half.
“When you go down 2-0 to a team like Boomers with talent all over the park that knocks the ball around, it is almost impossible to make a comeback.”
