They may have lost plenty of experience in the past 12 months, but Albion Park's women continue to be the benchmark for the South Coast competition.
Park sit in top spot on the Women's Division One ladder with four rounds left. The side has been a dominant force in recent history, including winning the past six consecutive grand finals.
However, several Park players hung up the boots last October, including their captain Tenaya Davis.
As a result, striker Brittany Ring, who is in her 11th season with Albion Park, said "we didn't really have any high expectations" in 2020.
"We lost three to four hundred first grade games' experience with some of the girls who retired. We're super happy with how we're going, it's been a good season so far," Ring said.
"We just have a lot of passion. The girls train, week in, week out. And we've been lucky, we've kept a core group over the last decade.
"We're all mates, it's really easy to work hard for someone on the field whose a best mate to you. And 'Macca [Richard Davis] drives that through us and the club."
Ring herself is also enjoying a superb season. She has scored eight goals in nine games so far, sitting only behind Kiama's Natalie Henderson (11) in the division's leading goal scorer race.
"I've struggled a little bit with my knee this year," Ring said.
"But I'm lucky, my job on the field is to score goals and I get really good service up there. I'm starting to slow down a little bit but I'm still scoring goals."
