Andy Butler says he is keen to see the Belles back in action as they travel to Sporting Khalsa on Sunday.

Weather conditions across the country have played havoc with the Belles’ fixtures in recent weeks and the weekend’s visit to the Aspray Arena is the Belles’ first away trip in 2020, but Butler says the disruption hasn’t halted his side’s hard work in training.

“We can’t wait to get back to it after another good week of training, we’ve been disappointed with games getting called off, but at the same time that’s given us more time to get work done at training,” he said.

“We’ve been able to get more into the players in the time that we have had, and hopefully come Sunday they can show what we know they’re able to do, we keeping looking to nail down how we want to play.

“We’re looking forward to actually playing games now, that’s all we want to do, the girls are really positive and them being how they are is really refreshing for us to see.”

As well as being pleased with how training has gone in recent weeks, Butler feels the desire and commitment shown by his side shows how well they all want to do for the club.

“They’re still taking on board all that information we’ve given them, we know we have some tough games coming up, but we’ve said to the players that we have full confidence in them to keep showing the application and attitude they have so far,” he added.

“They’re all willing to come in and listen to what we want to do here, it shows to me that they have the desire to do well for the club and for each other.

“We want to do well in every game we play of course, but we’ve said to the players if they perform well then the result will follow, we know we won’t win every game, but as long as they perform and do what we ask we’ll be more than happy.”
