YOUNGER players through the midcourt teaming up with Lucy King and Kirby Knight in goals will be a combination to watch, Harrow-Balmoral coach Ebonie Salter believes.
Courtney Clough has also joined the team and will bring some experience to the mid-court.
Salter said with a year off, she had noticed a difference with the younger players and the maturity that comes with being 18 months older.
"It's both physical and mental maturity and attitude (that) has certainly changed I think," she said.
"Yes, we lack the court time but we've been able to train a lot differently and thatcourt time we can improve on during the year. But that maturity of being 18 months older is quite exciting to see and see it at work on the court."

Salter said chasing down strong teams such as Natimuk and Laharum was going to prove tough, but she felt the team was up for the challenge.
"We will be looking at breaking their game and team right down," she said.
"They've got strength, traditionally, everywhere on the court. We just need to break down every position and beat them on a one-to-one. We won't be relying on one or two players to beat them and carry us. We all need to be accountable and I think head-to-head we could match up ok - we would just need to come together as we've got a brand new group of players."
Salter said since the team was on the court last there were some big changes within the group.
"We've got a few girls that can't commit to the season so will be playing a game here or there," she said.
"We've got the juniors who have come up as full-time players now as well."
As all coaches are hopeful for, finals was a goal for Salter.
"We'll be going into the unknown with our side and other teams will be coming to us with the unknown as well," she said. "We tend to start slowly and have a really good method of getting to our peak by the end of the year."
