Thomson: we’ve got the talent but must remain focused

Caledonia Pride return to Edinburgh this weekend for what will be the team’s first home fixture of the calendar year.

The Scottish franchise has already enjoyed some impressive victories this season but an inconsistent Championship campaign has seen the team win just three of its ten outings.

Having already beaten Cardiff Met Archers earlier in the season, on route to the Cup Final, Pride will be keen to regain some Championship momentum. However, for Scottish international Sarah Thomson, nothing is being taken for granted.

“I don’t think the outcome of our last meeting with Cardiff will have much effect on this weekend’s game,” declared Thomson.

“It’s all about who shows up on the day.

“It will obviously give us some confidence knowing we can beat them but again it will be a tough game and we have to play our best.

“We’ll definitely need to keep Marissa Quick and Stef Collins quiet and limit their second chance opportunities.

“We are a really talented team but have to focus in and play well for the full 40 minutes.”

Caledonia Pride host Cardiff Met Archers at the Centre for Sports & Excercise, University of Edinburgh on Saturday, 5:00PM.
