Millwall Lionesses manager Aidan Boxall is aiming to complete his club's progress in the new-look National Division this season.
Millwall finished in eighth place in their first season following promotion, having won the Southern Division in the previous campaign, and Boxall is setting his sights high in the eight team division.
"There are some good teams in the league, no question, and competition will be tough," he says, "but the aim will be to try and win the league. We have a very good squad with some extremely talented players and if we can add to that, then we will be looking to compete with Sunderland and Leeds to win the Premier League.
"Competing in that league last year was a massive learning curve for everyone involved and we have to use that experience and learn from it going forward, which we intend to do. We had some fantastic performances against some of the best teams in the women's game and we have to learn how to turn performances into results which we will do."
The Lionesses were one of the eight clubs whose application to the Super League was unsuccessful but their squad has been largely unaffected and indeed is set to be stronger this time around. "The squad has returned to pre-season looking fitter and more focused, ready for the season ahead," added Boxall.
"Cherelle Albert, a centre forward, has signed from Chelsea. I have missed out on a couple of players who have decided to sign for Super League clubs, which you can understand. I am currently talking to a few individuals who I hope will agree to sign in the coming weeks.
"We also have a number of talented youngsters in the reserves from last year and that have graduated from the Under-16s this year who have really impressed me and, if they continue to work as hard as they have, then I may not need to sign many more players. The team is shaping up well."
