The Belles have produced a unique version of their badge to show support for key workers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Belles will use the new badge - which is a silhouette of the usual badge, but entirely in NHS blue - across all social media channels. Doncaster Rovers and Doncaster RLFC, also part of the Club Doncaster group, have also adopted similar badges.

Belles chief executive Russ Green said: “This is a simple gesture that our communications team came up with while taking part in Thursday’s national moment of applause for the NHS.

“That was a special moment that brought the country together, and we’re going to leave the badge as it is until we are able to return to some kind of normality.

"Although we’ve used the colours of the NHS, we want to be clear that we’re right behind all key workers - these are the people keeping the country running so everyone else can stay safe.”

Key workers include at least one member of the Belles squad, with defender Chloe Starling working as a paramedic.

Russ added: “We know our fans love our players, but right now people like Chloe are the real heroes out there - risking their lives to keep people safe.

“We are so grateful for their efforts and want to do what we can to thank them. Right now we will help where we can in supporting their public health messages, and our local authorities all know we’re ready to help where asked.

"Once we can start really planning for next season we will look at what we can do to celebrate the efforts of our local key workers.”
