Bolton will reacquaint themselves with some old friends after promotion including the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Ipswich Town, Rotherham United, Charlton Athletic and Wigan Athletic.
Three of Blackpool, Sunderland, Lincoln City or Oxford United will also fall by the wayside in the play-offs, making for an ultra-competitive division.
Doyle believes with the right investment over the summer and the return of a large fanbase to the University of Bolton Stadium, Bolton should be regarded as one of the big-hitters when the action starts up again in August.
“What a league it is next year,” he told The Bolton News. “There are some massive clubs and I really think we’re one of them.
“It is going to be some season. Please God the fans get back in and we can have a full house, it’ll be so exciting.
“If we can carry on what we have been doing since February, see what the gaffer can add over the summer, a bit of extra quality that you will need at a higher level, then I see no reason why we can’t be up there again.”
After celebrations at the weekend, Wanderers have now started to see how they can build on the success of the last few months.
More than 3,000 season ticket holders have now renewed and the feelgood factor around the town has been picked up in the dressing room.
“The club is in a good place at the minute,” Doyle said. “You can see by the way people are carrying themselves, it’s promising times.
“I am just so privileged, so grateful that I have had a small, small part to play in the success.”
The prospect of playing in front of fans at the UniBol is one that Doyle particularly relishes. The striker was seen partying with the crowds outside the hotel in the small hours of Sunday morning and joining in with the crowd chants.
Doyle has represented 10 clubs in his career to date and says he has felt a connection since leaving Swindon Town last summer.
Asked if he expected fans to be chanting his name again in August, he laughed: “If I don’t start the season well next season they might not!
“I couldn’t wait to get among them, I had a great laugh. But I love this place, I feel at home, the lads, the gaffer, the way we play – everything is working out well. It’s nice.”
