Goalkeeper Nicola Hobbs expects the spotlight to be firmly on the returning Doncaster Rovers Belles this season, but is relishing the challenge of FA WSL 1 football.
With a new training facility being built and top additions made to Doncaster's squad ready for the 2016 campaign, Hobbs has been delighted with the club's progress both on and off the pitch.
The 28-year-old shot-stopper from Sheffield believes the Belles can certainly cause a few upsets against the nation's best women's football teams this year.
"As a club I expect us to do well and to hold our own," said the former Lincoln Ladies ace. "It's going to be the first season we've been full time so the limelight is going to be on us, particularly after winning 'FA WSL 2 Club of the Year' (at the 2015 FA Women's Football Awards) and with our brand new training facilities. People will be looking at us and asking 'What can you deliver?'
"I'd like to think we can build a basis of where we want to be - get a foundation and build from it. I'm not going to say we want to go win the league because that's going to be a hard job. You look at the likes of Manchester City who are still trying to win league silverware and they've got internationals travelling from all parts of the globe to be in their team.
"We can compete because we've got the team spirit, we've been playing together a long time and we've got the team already there as well as new additions who have slotted in nicely.
"As long as we keep training hard and working hard, you never know where we might end up."
