At the end of last week, Ashlee Hincks gave Premier League new girls Gillingham a boost ahead of pre-season as she committed her future to the club.
The former England under-19 striker has been the subject of numerous approaches from Premiership side Millwall throughout the season and again just last week.
Talking exclusively to the Gills Ladies web site, Ashlee explains what made her stay: "Everything really, the girls, the management and the fact that I am really enjoying my football again.
"It is always a compliment to be targeted by any clubs regardless of what League they are in but obviously it is a tribute to this year's performance from everyone that I am playing well and getting noticed."
Ashlee is aiming to make the Gills a force to be reckoned with and hopes to be challenging the teams in the National Division in the not to distant future. She added: "It is definitely my aim, when I sat down with Ian before I signed we discussed about gaining promotion and that was our aim to make the Gills into a successful women's team.
"Then progress into the highest League possible and I have no doubt that we can get there, a lot of hard work from everyone but it is definitely a realistic target."
This season couldn't have got any better for Hincks who joined the club to embark on its most successful season ever. "It has been a long while since I won a trophy and to win to was amazing, obviously the League was the most important, but to be the best club in Kent is fantastic and it is exactly where we deserve to be.
"It feels good to be involved in something so special and to be a part of a team that has been the most successful is something that I will definitely keep hold of."
Like all the players at Gills, Ashlee is looking forward to next season and playing in the Southern Division. She added: "Next year is going to be a real test for us and we need to raise the bar a hell of a lot to get there. We are all capable and the Barnet game, whilst the score didn't reflect the game at all, we had the most possession they just made their chances count which we have to do next season.
"We are not going to get the chances we did this year in front of goal so we need to make the ones we do get count. I think fitness will be a huge thing, as much as I moan about pre-season it really needs to e a hard one for our own good.
"The pace of the game is a lot faster in the Southern Premiership and you don't get as much time on the ball. You need to know where the ball is going before it even reaches your feet. I think if everyone works together and we all stick together through pre-season we will hit the ground running. Watch out Southern Premiership here come the Gills I say." (by Chris Dicketts)
