Matchwinner Ewens happy with return from injury


By Daylin Docherty

Goalscorer, Sarah Ewens, bagged her 51st goal for the Hoops on Sunday which gave all three points to the Ghirls.

Ewens who scored a stunning 50th strike for the Celts last Sunday against Hearts, got her second goal of the season after pouncing on a mistake by the Spartans defender to keep up the Hoops’ good start to the new campaign.

Despite not being her greatest goal for the Celts, there was no getting away from the importance of the strike that gave Celtic back-to-back wins in the SWPL1.

“We are delighted to get the three points, it was a hard game against Spartans,” she told the official club website.

“It has come down to one goal and it’s got us the three points and I’ve helped the team. It is probably not my finest goal, but I’ll take it,” she said.

The Spartans defender, Bobbie Beveridge, looked to clear her lines but her clearance was blocked and pressed by Sarah Ewens and the rebound went past Harrison in goal. 

“I just think, when you put them under pressure it can always lead to a mistake. 

“I’ve just went for the ball, luckily she’s turned one way and I’ve intercepted it and it has gone into the back of the net. Happy with it of course, it is a goal and I will take any goal,” she said.

It was a frustrating start to the season for Ewens as she was suffered a calf injury just before the opening game of the season against Glasgow City. However, returning from injury, she has scored in back-to-back games for the Celts.

“I am happy to be back, but still at the point where I can’t quite do 90 minutes as of yet. But, happy to be back on the pitch.

“I got a calf injury just before the Glasgow City match - it was very frustrating. Going into that game, I wasn’t fully fit and I wasn’t able to play my game at all. However, the last two games, I have been able to push on and try to show what I can do, so I am delighted to be back from injury,” she said.

Ewens, like anyone involved with Celtic, now looks ahead to next week’s massive Glasgow Derby in the SWPL1 with Celtic visiting Rangers, who are undefeated in their opening three games of the season.

“Always looking forward to the derby, it is one of those fixtures you look out for every season. There will be a lot of focus on next week.

“The last two games has gave us confidence, we played well today, we controlled the game well. It has put us in good stead for next week,” she said.

Celtic FC Women visit Rangers Women at the Rangers Training Centre next Sunday in a 3pm kick-off.
