Title in sight as Boomers back in town

BOOMERS have rediscovered their mojo.

That’s the line from defender Gemma Noordewier as the Glen Park women’s team all but wrapped up their sixth league title in the past decade.

Boomers put league title rival Melrose to the sword yesterday — dominating possession and chances in its 4-0 victory.

They are now a point in front of second-placed Diamonds with a game in hand, and six points clear of Melrose.

Noordewier, who shared best on ground with Emily Bowhuis, said lessons learnt from the Netherlands at the World Cup had breathed life into the team.

“(Coach) Steve Hayes went to the World Cup and came back with some ideas from those top teams — (the game) is always changing so we have tweaked our game,” she said.

“The young girls out wide, Emily Bowhuis and Joey Cartwright, are the key — the opposition haven’t really known who they were marking.”

Torey Saisanid said Boomers needed at least one more win to take the title.

“But the aim is to win all of them into the cup finals and win the cup as well,” she said.

“We had four weeks of no games and were training and getting frustrated and we lost our way a little — but since the change of formation we haven’t looked back.”
