The Pascoe Cup premiership was within Henwood Park’s grasp in 2015, and coach Kyle Doswell has committed to another season with the club, eager to reach the grand final again, and go one better.
“I’d like to try again and win it, but to have another good season like we did last year will be enough,” he said.
Unlike premiership winners Junee who have hemorrhaged senior players in the off-season, Henwood Park presents a relatively unchanged team.
The Hawks will lose Jordan Buik, and face the possibility of losing the league’s lead goal scorer Jake Ploenges due to a knee injury.
Doswell has recruited at least one, and possibly three players, who were previously involved in the sport.
Henwood Park will play a few more practice games to prepare them more readily.
“We will try not to drop those opening games next season,” Doswell said.
Having participated in a couple of coaching courses recently, Doswell has been inspired to dabble with new structures, eager to keep the opposition guessing and handle a new challenge.
“I’ve been watching the way a few A League teams have been playing and I like the way the Central Coast plays,” Doswell said.
“Even though they let a lot of goals in, at least it’s entertaining.”
Henwood Park’s five-time premiership winning women’s coach Rod Buik will also return for another dominant season.
