Interview with Forfar Farmington’s Keira Johnstone

Keira Johnstone

Forfar Farmington attacker Keira Johnstone was delighted to notch a goal in the 3-2 win over Hearts in the Scottish Cup, praising how the whole team played.

The 17 year old scored the opener, which was her second of the season, the other coming in the win over Inverness in April.

Speaking after the game, Johnstone said “I think that’s the best we’ve played technically in a while, especially in the first half, we were moving the ball around really well, our movement off the ball was great and we created a lot of chances. I felt we probably should have taken our chances a bit better because we were the more dominant team.”

The striker put in a great performance but believes she could have played better in the second period “In the first half I was more involved in the game and obviously got myself a goal, I thought that was great but I got a bit panicked in the second half and I didn’t get involved as much as I would have liked to.”

Johnstone reckons the side can take the momentum into next week’s final league game before the mid season split having played well with nothing to show for it in recent weeks.

“Now we have a win, it’s a confidence boost and I think we should be looking to beat Hutchison Vale next week. We’ve been unlucky the last few weeks, it’s been close games but we should be on more than four points. Even though this win wasn’t in the league, it’s good to get a victory, just to pick up our confidence.”

Last March she was ruled out for the entire season after dislocating her knee in a game against Hamilton but Johnstone is delighted with how well she is improving with every game, having made ten appearances in 2015 “I feel as if I am getting more confident with each game, when I first came back I was a bit wary when I was going into tackles but I think I am improving with each game.”

Farmington play Hutchison Vale this Sunday at Station Park with a 2pm kick off, admission for adults is £4 while under 16’s can get in for free and you can also pick up a copy of the popular match programme. The sides met in a friendly back in March, Forfar coming away with a 3-1 win after a Holly Napier double and another from Lindsey Dunbar.
