After winning the Southern Region League title last season, Basingstoke Town are looking forward to the challenge of Premier League football.
The Hampshire side will have to wait until next Sunday before playing their first match against Southampton Saints and manager Rob Quilter told Women's Soccer Scene: "After a great season last year, the players made the most of the break and came back re-motivated, ready to get back into it.
"We have lost several players due to other commitments but have strengthened with several new players signing in recent weeks.
"To meet the stipulations of the new league, we have a new home ground at the Ark Cancer Stadium and have gained a committed sponsor in Steve Hart of 1Space who has helped us with a new kit, physio, training facilities amongst other things.
"Our pre-season games have gone well after a tough defeat to Crystal Palace at the start. Since then we have won 4-0 and 8-2 which were strong performances while integrating new players. Recently we drew with QPR in a very competitive game but were dominant through several stages of the match.
"Our players are excited to start the season and be tested against new opponents."
