“It’s all about fitness for the first couple of weeks and getting our aerobic base together,” he said.

And Juric is looking forward to the challenge.

“We’ve got changes in personnel so it will be a bit of a challenge.

“Plus, we’ve got a new team in the league, a young squad again and the challenge of the team expectations we always have at this club.

“I’m looking forward to the players improving and growing and players like Jada and Remy will take their game to another level this season.

“We’ve lost some key leaders in Teresa Polias, Clare Wheeler and Liz Ralston so it is time for someone to step up and grow into that position.

“I’m looking forward to it and we’ll seeg what pre-season and the season brings.”
