Improvement on Leicester's agenda
 Women's Football News 15 Aug 2009
Improvement on Leicester's agenda - 15 Aug 2009 - Women's Football NewsLeicester City are looking forward to the start of the new season with their opener away at Curzon Ashton to start off the campaign.
Pre-season has brought some tough tests in terms of games played but that is something the City side love. Outings against Colchester, Sunderland, Coventry, Leeds Carnegie and Birmingham City have all helped the determined side to prepare for things to come. After a pleasing fifth place in their first season in the Northern Division last year, City are obviously looking onwards and upwards so improving on that fifth place is a clear goal.
Manager Rehanne Skinner has been pleased with the progress so far. "We have had a good build up to the start of the season," she told Women's Soccer Scene. "With players such as Leanne Hall, Rachel Stowell and Hannah Williams now back to full fitness, we have regained three players that we didn't get a lot of games out of in the second half of the season last year, which cost us as all three were capable of playing integral parts in our progress.
"The youngsters are progressing at a steady pace and a couple have shone, which gives us a better depth of squad should it be needed, plus new signings who have fitted in well and also shown us what they are about. Last year was a massive learning curve for all involved, this year we are much more prepared and fitter so improving on fifth place is our key target."
There have been several young players progressing through the City Centre of Excellence and into the seniors this year who have been working hard and showing promise. With experience, youngsters such as Mary Earps and Katie McLoughlin may start to step into the side as the season goes on with the likes of Holly Morgan and Lauren Handley not far behind.
"There have been nine players move up from the Under-16s altogether plus new signing, defender Helen Rudkin who was a previous Centre of Excellence graduate and has now been brought back into the club to offer stability at the back."
