Gemma Shepherd is hopeful she will be a Charlton Athletic player next season, despite the club not being in the FA WSL.
Shepherd joined the Addicks from West Ham United in the summer and has had an outstanding season, netting 27 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions. Her extra time strike helped Charlton win the London Cup earlier this season but she feels the season, which will see them finish no higher than sixth in the National Division, has been "up and down".
Charlton saw their application to join the FAWSL from 2014 rejected, with teams like Millwall Lionesses, Watford and London Bees (Barnet FC) preferred. The transfer window opens for those teams in June but Shepherd admitted she would like to stay with the Addicks for the foreseeable future.
She said: "As a team [this season] has been pretty up and down, but personally I think I've had a good season and really enjoyed it and I'm hoping for more of the same next year.
"I think I'm going to stay. I don't want to say definitively yes or no because I don't think you can ever say that until you've signed on the dotted line, as it were.
"I'm 90 per cent sure I'm going to stay - I just love the club and, although I feel I could make that step up to Super League Two, or even One, at the moment I'm pretty happy."
