Libby Bance said that there was frustration in the women’s squad to have finished just short of their record points tally last season.
But the 18-year-old believes two solid mid-table finishes in the last two years gives the team plenty to build on going forward.
“It was frustrating to fall just short of the record points tally because we were so close and last year we didn’t pick up points where we feel we should have, such as the Birmingham game right at the end of the season.
“We have a really good foundation that we’ve built on over the past couple of years and we need to keep doing that.
“We have lost some good talent over the summer, but the club are looking to invest and that could potentially strengthen areas that can help us hopefully surpass our record finish [of sixth].”
Libby made three WSL appearances during the 2021/22 campaign and wants to aim for a more regular spot in the team this coming year.
“I want to play more games this year and I haven’t scored yet, so it would be good to get on the scoresheet. I am not an out and out goal scorer but I am looking to add goals and more assists to my game.”
