bles.It is very frustrating because it is hard to get consistency and timing, he s from LAM's blog

Manchester City and England midfielder Jill Scott says the passion for football in the North East is a driving force behind the emergence of so many talented female players from the region. Hokie Gajan Jersey . A number of current internationals - including Scott, skipper Steph Houghton, Lucy Bronze, Jordan Nobbs and Carly Telford - hail from the North East and have all played at Sunderland at some point in their career.I think there must be something in the water, Scott told Sky Sports. Growing up I was always around football. I had a season ticket at Sunderland from the age of seven and I think there is just a real passion and a real love for the game up here. Durham-born Steph Houghton is Manchester City and England Womens captain If you look at all the players that have come through from the North East they are all hard-working and gritty. I dont know if thats because we played most weekends in the rain and the wind and that made us a lot stronger.But a lot of us played under Mick Mulhern at Sunderland and he was someone who would always give young players an opportunity.I remember playing with the first team around the age of 14 and some of my team-mates were around 29 or 30. Jill Scott has more than 100 caps for England It was tough being so young but giving us that opportunity at that age strengthened us. He did that with a lot of young players and you can see them reaping the benefits of that as players now. Its fantastic to see so many girls from the North East coming through.Scott was speaking at a coaching session for 35 girls run by Evolution Soccer in Durham, where she joined Newcastle United Womens defender Emily Ellis.This was a fantastic opportunity to come along and team up with Evolution Soccer who run a lot of coaching academies for boys and now they have one for girls, Scott said. Jordan Nobbs (r) and Lucy Bronze (l) are also from the North East Ive been doing soccer schools for the last two years or so now and I absolutely love doing stuff like this. Its great to see how many girls are now getting involved.It was difficult for myself growing up because there were a lot of boys playing and you did get bullied sometimes because you were the only girl playing.But now seeing the girls and talking to their parents, they say their confidence has really gone up because they are around girls and not around boys all the time.

PETERSBURG, Fla. . The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast. St George Illawarra are scratching around for confidence, Benji Marshall admits, as the joint-venture desperately try to keep their NRL season alive.The Dragons have won just three of their last eight fixtures and slumped to their third successive loss to Wests Tigers on Sunday.The joint venture remain in finals contention, sitting two points outside the top eight with six rounds remaining.But star playmaker Marshall, who has struggled with a hamstring injury for much of the year, knows they have to turn things around quickly.We have definitely made it tough for ourselves and probably got a lot of people on our backs because of it, Marshall said.But we need to stick together as a team and find out what is going to turn it around.We just need that one moment to click our confidence into gear. Because I will be honest with you we are lacking confidence in a lot of areas of the game.Whether that is due to outside noise or outside pressure or (being) scared to make a mistake or the pressure of where we are on the table, we just need something to go our way, something to turn the season around and that is going to be hard work. Ken Stabler Jersey. Marshall said his side were letting themselves down in key moments.We need to be better, we need to be tougher in those moments when the game is in the balance. We are not toughening those moments out, he said.The Wests Tigers premiership winner admitted he was struggling to overcome his injury troubles.It is very frustrating because it is hard to get consistency and timing, he said.For me it has been a bit of a step forward and then a step back and then starting again and trying to get through games not worrying about injury.You might think you are not worrying about it but it is the back of your head there.
