Chelsea aiming higher
 Women's Football News 17 Aug 2006
Chelsea aiming higher - 17 Aug 2006 - Women's Football NewsChelsea are looking forward to their second season in the top flight of women's football and are aiming higher after last season's victory over Liverpool in the play-offs.
Head Coach Shaun Gore has brought in a number of new players during the summer, one of which is England under-19 striker Dunia Susi who has made the move from Fulham.
After a good season with the Cottagers, Dunia is hoping to bring goals to Chelsea and she told Women's Soccer Scene that she is settling in well with her new club. "Goals are probably the most important thing in my game," she says. "Hopefully, I can bring that to the team and do well here.
"It's been very good, but hard work (so far)," she added. "Pre-season is always hard but it's been going really well.
"Hopefully we can get off to a good start and have a good season, getting into mid-table. That would do us fine - I think we've got a good season ahead of us and hopefully we can go on from there and in a few years, you never know, top spot for us."
Sophie Perry was a part of the squad that battled successfully against relegation and she feels that this will stand them in good stead this time around. "Last season we found it a bit hard, but the spirit of the whole squad brought us through," she says. "If anyone had come to watch the Liverpool game, they'll have seen that the team spirit was tremendous and we will bring that through to the new season with the new players.
"We went to the Isle of Wight and have had a good tour over there, and we also did some Football in the Community work. Shaun Gore is a great manager and he has brought us together.
"We are aiming to stay up, which I think we can do, but I would be really happy with finishing fifth or sixth."
Sophie, like many of her team mates, had only limited experience of the National Division but feels that last season did her a lot of good. "I played in the Premiership for Brighton when I was 14," she reveals, "but last year was my first full season. It was hard, but I have learnt a lot and I am ready for the new season."
The new campaign for Chelsea begins with a local derby against Fulham. Dunia is relishing the chance to play against her former club, saying: "It should be interesting, and I am looking forward to it." Sophie adds, with tongue firmly in cheek, "With the new girls from Fulham, it should be a grudge match!"
