Hearts women

Olid: We’re in a good place

04 March 2024

Hearts Women moved three points clear in fourth spot on Sunday with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Dundee United at Foundation Park.


All the damage was done in the first half hour as a brace from Emma Brownlie, either side of a Danni Findlay strike had Hearts on easy street before the interval.


The Jambos spurned numerous chances in the second half to extend their lead, but at the other end, the back door was kept firmly shut and it was a very routine victory for the women in maroon.


Speaking to Hearts TV at full-time, Olid said:


“It was a good performance. In the last match, we won the game, but it wasn’t a good performance. Today, we really played as we wanted, combination play and nice football.


“In the second half, we could’ve scored more goals, but the main objective was the three points and a good performance.


“We finish the second round of league fixtures in a good position. Today was a good way to finish that and now we head into the split.”


It was a successful day for Jambos of all ages as the girls under-14s and under-18s both lifted the Scottish Women’s Youth Cup with victories over Celtic.


The 18s came out on top 4-2, meanwhile the 14s held their nerve to lift the trophy following a sudden death penalty shootout win.


“It is so positive,” said Olid, when asked about the respective triumphs.


“They are the future of the club, and we are so happy for them. Huge congratulations to everyone.”


It’s Scottish Cup action next up for Hearts as they travel to Partick Thistle, knowing a Hampden semi-final is lying in wait for the victors.


“We are looking forward to that match now and today was a good match to prepare for next week,” Olid concluded.
