Wolves Women manager Steve Cullis is setting his sights on bringing happier times back to the club this season.
Wolves were relegated from the Northern Division at the end of last season and, during the summer, Steve stepped up from previously managing the reserves to take charge of the first team, assisted by Anna Perks.
"I'm very much looking forward to the challenge ahead," he told Women's Soccer Scene. "Myself and the players are very excited of the forthcoming season.
"We have worked very hard in pre-season and can't wait for the opening game to showcase what we are all about."
Last season ended up as a traumatic one for the club but the new boss is not dwelling on this and looking forward instead, whilst feeling that they should aim to regain their Northern Division status as soon as possible:
"I think a club of this size should always be looking for promotion, myself and the players believe we have the right tools to be successful in the league and compete in every game. I'm hopeful of a successful season and so are my players.
"I think its hugely important for the club, not only to the seniors but for our juniors squads, to see us competing in a highly competitive league. We want our juniors to aspire to represent Wolves Women's first team, so myself and seniors need to make sure we are playing at the highest possible level."
Wolves open up their season in Midlands Division One with local derbies against Solihull Ladies and Sporting Khalsa, and Steve sees both games as particularly important ones. "Getting off to a good start will be a priority for all the teams in the league," he said. "It sets the tone for the rest of the season and will hopefully get us on our way to our season target. We will go in to every game confident we can obtain the correct result.
"We have added some great quality to an already strong squad, we have focused a lot on youth development and giving our Under-18s the opportunity to feature in the first team throughout the season will be a key focus, so we are hopeful those players will add even more to the squad."
So overall, what does Steve think would be a good season for the club this time? "We would be happy by competing in every game and making every game difficult for the opposition. We will have one eye on promotion but for me, it's about getting back to enjoying our football, implementing our playing style and being difficult to beat."
