Manly United’s ‘Assist Queen’ Libby Copus-Brown had the Northern Beaches club bouncing on ceilings after her five-star performance in the club’s epic 3-2 victory over Sydney Olympic, but her focus has now been pointed directly to this Sunday’s Grand Final against Sydney University SFC.
“I think it showed character for us to be able to come back after being down majority of the game, but it wasn’t our best game of football I know we can be better.
“But I’m so proud of the girls for never giving up and fighting hard and sometimes that’s finals football.
“I don’t think it was the best Manly can be football wise and that’s including myself, it was a great feeling to be able to help the team but at the end of the day it was a team effort and I’m just glad that I was able to play my part.
Manly United fans are hoping of more of the same from Copus-Brown who hopes her troops can push the Premiers to the limit come Sunday afternoon and send head coach Chris Williams off a Championship winner.
“The girls are in good spirits; we are fine tuning and working on what we need to do to be better.
“I know that everyone is pumped for the big dance this Sunday and doing everything they can to make sure we prove what Manly United is really about and send our coach Chris Williams off in a way that he deserves.”
The 22-year-old English born star who is also a Childcare Educator has earmarked former Matildas star Michelle Heyman as one to watch out for at Sunday’s huge clash.
“Sydney Uni are a solid team, they have depth right through and majority of the girls have played together for a long time now.
“They have the likes of ex-Matilda Michelle Heyman and plenty of current and ex W-League girls who are all class.
“It won’t be an easy challenge but we will be definitely up for it.”
