Strikers women’s coach Mick Simons says his side has learned from its  first two rounds in the Leonard Cup and will focus on structure ahead of Sunday’s fixture against Young.

“There were some good patches of play in our last few games so now we’re really encouraging the girls to retain possession and build play from the back,” Simons said.

The game also marks Alana Simons’ 200th appearance for the Strikers, who will look to celebrate her service with a win at O’Connor Park.
