Charlton positive for future
 Women's Football News 22 May 2009
Charlton positive for future - 22 May 2009 - Women's Football NewsCharlton Athletic captain Kimberley Dixson was pleased with her team's efforts this season after their fourth place finish in the Southern Division of the Premier League.
The Addicks led the table for much of the season and eventually saw Millwall Lionesses go on to win the title but Kimberley took a philosophical view of how the campaign had gone. "We've had a lot of injuries and I think that has affected us," she told Women's Soccer Scene. "We have picked up some silly draws along the way. I think we could have won the league if we had kept going but, after Christmas, we didn't play in January and February so we didn't pick our form up and that is what has cost us."
The season, overall, has been a transitional one for Charlton following their relegation from the top flight the previous year. "I think we have had a lot of youngsters come through and they have stepped in and done a good job for us, so that is a big positive for the whole club," says Kimberley. "There is a good structure in the club and people can come in and do well.
"It's nearly back to normal now after everything that happened, so hopefully we can keep it going."
Harley Bennett has been an important part of the side in the centre of defence and she is optimistic about the club's future. "Hopefully we can keep our best players and, if we do, we've got a good chance next year," she said. "Millwall were our biggest rivals this season and, if we stay consistent, I don't see why not."
Harley admitted that the arrival of strikers Natalie Crinean and Ellie Stenning has been a big boost to the squad. "They work really well together," she enthused. "They hold the ball up and play off each other very well and it is good to see. At the start of the season, that is what we lacked - a partnership up front."
The key word for Charlton this season has been stability, particularly after their nightmare season which saw them lose their best players and ultimately their National Division status. "I think we've done the club a bit of justice this season," she said. "I think it's been tough, because last season we nearly folded and lost a lot of players but after coming down this year, we had a lot of expectations and lived up to them.
"It's a shame we didnt get promoted but we know it is possible now and we're very positive for next season."
