Videos: Jacynta on the match plus Unique Angle as six Celts score at Hamilton

Jacynta has had to wait patiently for his first start of the season and she certainly started with a bang when given the opportunity by Fran Alonso yesterday afternoon at New Douglas Park in Hamilton. The Australian was given the full 90 minutes and relished her opportunity throughout.

In the first minute she was unlucky not to open the scoring but put that disappointment behind her two minutes later to become the first of six different Celtic players to end up on the scoresheet as Celtic maintained their position in a neck and neck three-way tussle at the top of the SWPL1.

Afterwards a clearly delighted Jacynta spoke to Celtic TV: “Amazing, I’ve been waiting to play 90 minutes for a while now. The coach has seen that I have been working hard so I got the 90 minutes. As a team I think we played really well, six goalscorers is amazing and we dominated. As a team we played really well, we had good possession and it was a really good game,” the Australian Celt said.

Getting plenty of goals is crucial, as we pointed out in our earlier article looking at what Fran Alonso and the Hamilton coach were saying after the game.

“It’s really, really important,” Jacynta noted. “It’s a really competitive league and Glasgow City and (the)Rangers get a lot of goals so we have to make sure that we match them if not beat them so that we can stay at the top of the league.

“We all want to score for the team an for ourself, I had a few opportunities and could have scored a few more but I’m just glad we got the win and we played well as a team, so it’s good,” the Celtic player added.

Looking ahead to the home match next Sunday against Spartans: “It’s another good game. You don’t know what to expect from any opposition, everyone is good this season so we just have to do our best and get the three points and to get a lot of goals as well”.
