Alan Murphy's Galway WFC face Shelbourne in the WNL at Eamonn Deacy Park on Saturday (6pm ).

Galway WFC's recent away win over Treaty United was a significant boost, but since that success a number of players have been involved with the Republic of Ireland U19 squad.

"Obviously we had a week off, whether we wanted it or not, that is the way that it fell," Murphy says. "We now face the champions. The U19s are away, Thursday will probably be their next contact with us. It is looking positive, we just want to make sure the U19 girls get back and get a little bit of a rest before facing into the weekend again."

There is cause for optimism for Murphy, who has stitched a decent squad together. "The girls are still getting to know each other, even moving into a house together and not knowing each other," Murphy says about some of the recruits.

"That is difficult, but we are looking forward to the summertime, that training we can intensify, the change in hour with the light is important because we can get on the grass. Training on Astro all of the time is probably not conducive to the games we play. It is going to be a slow burner, but we are not using that as an excuse either."

Murphy was pleased with the triumph over Treaty in Limerick. "Some of the stuff I was really happy with, we didn't concede which was important," he adds. "People got their chance and some of the girls took their chance, some that mightn't have got as much time previously. We looked like we are gelling a little bit more, it is going to take a while because we have new players. It is going to take time, but it is looking positive."
