"I am so happy and proud that I managed to score but for me it is all about the team effort and we all fought for each other on the weekend and we are more than ready to do the same against Manchester United.

"We know it will be a challenge, they are a WSL club, but we are Bridgwater and we aren't nervous, we are more than ready to take them on," Laura said.
