The stakes couldn't be any higher for Radcliffe Olympic with the rebranding and the exciting addition to the newly formed FA Women's Premier League, with the prospect of a promised place in the FA WSL for the eventual winners!
Along with many other clubs, ROLFC are realising that to progress, there has to be a mind change and to move towards a more professional attitude to the game.
Radcliffe struggled last term, only avoiding relegation through a change in the structure but it is an ambitious club and one of the few that is fully backed by their parent club. A few new signings over the summer should make them more competitive.
Radcliffe manager Sam Winch believes he has now found the formula for a successful season, after unveiling his squad for the 2014-15 FA Women's Premier League Midlands Division One campaign.
Winch said: "After narrowly missing out on relegation last season, we have been busy assembling a group of players who understand what it means to play for the club and what it takes to compete with the top teams at this level."
The 20-player squad features a host of familiar faces - with no fewer than eleven new players and a wealth of Premier League experience.
"It was a difficult season last season for many reasons, but we don't want to dwell on that," added Winch. "We've regrouped and moved forward, albeit we're a relatively new squad in terms of gelling together, which is something we've worked on throughout pre-season, given that a large proportion of our new signings are experienced players, it means that they understand the requirements from the club and for the league they'll be competing in.
"We've had a good pre-season in terms of the time we've spent together and the matches that we've played. We've gone about our business quietly and we will let our football show what we're all about.
"Me personally, I'm excited to see the girls in competitive action, and to see them play and grow together as a team.
"A large contributory factor behind players wanting to stay with us and us attracting new players has to be down to support from our two major sponsors, 'The Chattel House & Estate Planning Group' which we are of course, very grateful to!"
Radcliffe Olympic LFC get their FA Women's Premier League Cup campaign underway away to Wolverhampton Wanderers next Sunday (31st August), kick-off at Hednesford Town FC is at 2pm.
