VIDEO: New Phoenix women’s coach Paul Temple faces media conference

Newly-appointed head coach of the Wellington Phoenix women’s A-League team Paul Temple says recruitment is going to be critical as he leads the side into its third season.

Temple says the evidence from other clubs’ success suggests that finding goalscorers is the key, and that will be part of the club’s strategy for next year.

Temple’s comments were made at a media briefing to introduce him as the club’s replacement for Natalie Lawrence who had decided not to seek reappointment.
