Gemma Ritchie is hoping for big things after making a summer move to Charlton Athletic from Fulham. The talented winger is one of a number of new arrivals for the Addicks and she told Women's Soccer Scene that she is aiming to make the move a success. "I just want a fresh start and I hope I can call this club my own now," says Gemma. "I want to keep my fitness up, train hard and start winning things.
"To aim to win a title is very important to me and I just want to win as many trophies as I can."
For the time being, Gemma's battle will be to win a regular place in the Charlton starting line up and that will be a challenge in itself. "I want to fit into the squad," she says, "and get to know the players well and see how I develop as a player. I've still got a lot to learn yet but hopefully the coaches and players will help me and I can learn a few things."
Gemma is confident that Charlton can be back amongst the honours. When asked about their chances, she replies: "Very good. As long as the team spirit is there, I just think that if the team can get it together early in the season, we have a great chance of winning trophies.
"There are a lot of young players coming through here. I'm still getting to know them but they all look good to me and there is nothing to stop us competing with Arsenal for the league this year."
Arsenal will be Charlton's first major opponents of the new season, next Thursday evening when the two teams clash in the curtain raiser - the F.A.Women's Community Shield at Milton Keynes. Charlton will be defending the trophy they won last year, when beating the Gunners 1-0 at Stevenage. "I know the players are looking forward to it," says Gemma. "It will be a big game but I believe it can be our first success."
