Launceston United are already looking to build on an excellent maiden season in the Women's Super League.
While the Birch Avenue side have concluded their fixtures, the outcome of remaining games will determine whether they finish second or third.
United leapfrogged Olympia by beating them 3-1 on Saturday to sit behind only fellow southern powerhouse Clarence who wrapped up a dominant title victory several weeks ago.
Kingborough could still grab second by beating Devonport on Saturday, but with a cup final appearance also fresh in the memory, co-coaches Lynden Prince and Frank Compton are happy with the team's progress and already planning for a second season at the helm.
"At the beginning of the season, we thought we could go mid-table - that was our expectation," Prince said. "We've done that and more, so we've got to be happy with that.
"The girls realise that with extra hard work they could have put in, we might already have had second place secured."
Having both cut their coaching teeth at Riverside, where Prince led men's and women's teams to Northern Championship titles in consecutive seasons, the pair found they shared a vision for United.
"I jumped on board because I wanted another challenge from what I had done previously and Frank wanted the same challenge," Prince said.
"I always said I would do it for two years so plan to stay on and the combination of two heads being better than one enables us to throw ideas between us."
Compton added: "I've really enjoyed it. Whether we've had highs or lows, we have the same conversations and don't get lost in the situation much. Good or bad, we start afresh each week and that's worked really well for us.
"Having similar ambitions helped. We knew we couldn't get to where we wanted in a day but had a two-year plan with this group and have been able to work towards the same goal.
"The girls give it their best and sometimes come up short and we have to adapt to that. We have learned a lot more about every single player than we knew six months ago."
A sound gameplan makes full use of wingers Laura Dickinson and Maddie Lohse who are among six ever-presents in the league along with midfield playmaker Jess Robinson, strikers Dani Gunton and Annie Reitsema and the versatile Gonya Luate.
Nichola Clark, Jess McCallumsmith, Elodie Gray, Madi Gilpin and keeper Sydney Carnie have also been mainstays on the teamsheet as the team cemented its decision to graduate to statewide competition from an unbeaten title-winning Northern Championship campaign.
Having beaten Zebras 5-1 in an attention-grabbing opening result, Saturday's victory over Warriors meant the team has beaten every other side at least once.
"The Clarence game could have hindered us a bit because in the second quarter of the season the girls probably thought the league was a little easier than it was," Compton said.
"We are closer to the top teams than the girls realise. Olympia are just another team to us now.
"Playing well in one game is one thing but our ambition is to be on a par with these teams."
Compton said the next challenge is attracting new players, particularly with Robinson likely to leave.
"I get the feeling players will stick around. We've had discussions and the rhetoric was 'we know what it's about now' and that's what we want to be hearing.
"We hope the local area see that this is the place to play Super League football in the North."
Prince added: "If players want to really test themselves then give it a go. We'll start early pre-season and if they want to come and train and make up their own mind they are welcome.
"What will make all squads stronger is those extra players to choose from and competition for spots.
"It's always hard to get full commitment with work situations but it's something we've got to look at for next year to aim for the next level and the ones that cannot commit to that have to run with the Northern Championship or fight for a spot."
Compton said the 3-2 cup semi-final win at Kingborough was among several highlights of the campaign.
"Even some of the defeats have given us more belief in the dressing room so it's not just the wins that help," he said.
"As long as they play for the shirt, are enjoying themselves and have the right attitude, then they are the highlights."
