Webb: Cup Final will provide an invaluable experience for our young team

Edinburgh University are one of the youngest sides in the SBC, with the team providing some of the country’s most promising talents with crucial senior experience.

The side head into this weekend’s Scottish Cup Final knowing they’ll face an experienced Lady Rocks team full of talent.

For Head Coach Jordan Webb the occasion will provide a wonderful learning opportunity for his young University roster, regardless of the result.

“I hope the final will have a positive impact on the girls, win or lose,” stated Webb.

“For the team to experience a senior final will be great. Hopefully it can serve as a confidence boost and a form of motivation for the future.

“Winning the Cup would be huge for this young group going into the rest of the season and would be a great reward for all of the effort and commitment the girls have shown.

“The biggest aspect of the game for us will be maintaining our defensive intensity. That is when we’re at our best and when our offense usually takes care of itself.”
