Interview with Forfar Farmington’s Keira Johnstone

You suffered a serious injury in March, how frustrating was it for it to happen so soon after the start of the season?

It was very frustrating as I had just completed my pre season training and was really looking forward to playing in the SWPL.

 

Was it difficult seeing your teammates suffer defeats like the ones at Glasgow City and Spartans when you were on the sidelines?

Yes, it was hard to watch as the team was so young and was short of players although they never let their heads go down and they always gave 100%.

 

You returned to playing for Farmington in July in a friendly against Motherwell, how was it finally playing again?

After being out for 4 months it felt amazing being back on the pitch with my teammates.  As soon as I got my first tackle out of the way it helped to regain my confidence.

 

Last week you were with the CYP squad that won the Rose Bowl beating England, N Ireland and Wales, congratulations on doing so but you came back from that with a knock, are you disappointed to be out for a couple of weeks at a time when you are trying to get back to full fitness?

Winning the tournament was a great achievement and I was happy to play in all 3 games.  Unfortunately during my last game I picked up another injury which I’m gutted about although hopefully I won’t be out for too long.

 

What are your hopes and aims for yourself as well as the SWPL side for the rest of the season?

I hope to be back playing fully fit as soon as possible as I want to help the team avoid relegation.
