Williams says U-20 women adapting well.

National Under-20 Women’s head coach Nicola Williams says that the pool of players currently in training are beginning to adapt to the type of training under the current team management since preparations commenced just under three months ago.

Williams, who is the assistant to Carolina Morace on the Senior Women’s Team, has been overseeing the Under -20 programme as the unit build towards the CONCACAF Final Round of Women Under 20 World Qualification which will be played in T&T in January.

“We are in the final weeks of the pre-season preparation for the team .We have had two matches against the boys team and one against the Venezuela senior women’s team which was very good for us,” Williams said.

“Now we have a commitment with a large squad of players and a routine that is established. We are training frequently and players are beginning to gel on and off the field so we are developing relationships with each other.

“One of our positives is that the players are coachable and adapting to the style of play we want to implement in T&T and we are continuing to build on this We have allowed players who have been in school and in exams to have a break over the Easter and then start back refreshed after the holiday period,” Williams added. Several of the Under 20 players are also involved in the training sessions with the Women’s Senior Team.
