‘Buzzing’ Park Reflects On Positive Everton Spell

Jess Park says she’s loving her time playing football at the moment as the forward continues to impress for Club and country.

The 21-year-old got her first senior Lionesses goal earlier this month after only 79 seconds on the field and followed it up with her second Everton goal of the season when she slotted home the third in a win over Sheffield United on Saturday.

The modest Park credited her teammates for her recent efforts but revealed the confidence in her game in recent weeks.

“I’m buzzing at the minute,” she told evertontv. “I just seem to be at the right place at the right time, I think!

“Ebony [Salmon] did the work away [with England] and Gio did the work against Sheffield, I was just there to slot it in.

“Gio comes on and brings the energy.

“She’ll always work hard, she’s fast and she’s got good feet.

“I was just the one to slot the ball in, she did all the work.”

It’s been an impressive start to life in Royal Blue for the on-loan Manchester City striker after her Player of the Match display against Liverpool in September.

With tickets continuing to sell-out at Walton Hall Park and confidence growing throughout the Everton squad, Park says she’s grateful to be a part of Brian Sorensen's team.

After missing out on the Blues’ previous league encounter due to being ineligible to play against her parent club Manchester City, the England international is eager to impress away at Arsenal this Saturday (2pm GMT).

“I think we’re getting there with how we want to play,” Park added.

“I like the formation, the way we play, getting on the ball.

“The girls give me confidence to go out on the pitch and perform to the best of my ability.

“Brian has confidence in me which only adds to my ability to perform on the field.

“All the girls are positive, the win at the weekend helps that.

“It sets us on track with good spirits. We’ll keep working all week towards the game at the weekend and I’m sure we can do well.

“It’s great to see so many of our supporters come along to our away games, too.

“Thank you as always to them, they help us in difficult games to lift the mood and push us on.”
