Curzon look for progression
 Women's Football News 13 Aug 2009
Curzon Ashton are seeking to establish themselves back in the Northern Division after a successful battle against relegation last season.
In their first year back in the Premier League after relegation, Curzon produced a good run after Christmas to keep hold of their status and they are confident of making an impact this time around.
"Our aim is to show a progression from last season and build a squad that can hold their heads up in the Premier League and challenge the big name clubs within the league," says manager Mark Bradshaw. "The lessons learnt from last season must make us stronger and more organised.
"The players must show commitment to illustrate that they are Premier League players and consistently perform to the required level and meet the demands of the Northern Division."
"We are looking forward to the new season," added captain Amanda Goodwin. "We've got some new players and a few new teams but we'll be up for the challenge and hopefully we'll be able to finish in the top half of table."
Bradshaw has been busy strengthening his options by adding some fresh faces during the summer. "We have brought in several players to freshen up the squad and challenge every position with healthy competition," he said. "Lauren Bracewell has joined from Rochdale, a young goalkeeper with a lot of experience at Combination level. Shelley James has signed from Liverpool, she is a striker who not only looks likely to score but can provide goalscoring opportunities for others.
"Kellie Leyland, a versatile defender who has played for Northern Ireland, joins after four years in America and three young, talented 16-year-olds have joined from the Manchester Centre of Excellence. Issy Hayes, Jodie Redgrave and Hannah McDonough are all looking for a successful first year in women's football.
"Charlotte Higginson has arrived after a lengthy injury lay off and is a player with a lot of experience at this level. We are hoping Charlotte can put her injury problems behind her."
Changes at Curzon over the summer have happened at board level with new Chairlady Heather Bellingham replacing Kirk Robertson and First team coach Luke Turner stepping up to Assistant Manager.
The club has had a busy summer of small sided football, reaching the semi finals in both the Umbro Fives at Wembley and the National Futsal championship, losing both times to eventual winners Watford. Amanda Goodwin was twice named player of the tournament after outstanding displays.
"We know a little more about the other teams now," said midfielder Nicky McLeod. "Hopefully we can work on that and make sure we know what we're doing when we go into games (this season)."
