Green provides Belles update

24 March 2020

Chief executive Russ Green says hard work is still going on around the club, despite the disruption to the season as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Belles’ season was suspended indefinitely by the FAWNL earlier this month, with all footballing activity at the Belles also put on hold until further notice.

Despite this, Green wanted to provide Belles supporters with an update on everything that is happening over the next few weeks to ensure the club remains in the best possible position both on and off the field when football resumes.

He said: “We are all working in unprecedented times at present and no-one quite knows what is around the corner, everyone at the club is looking forward to getting back to football being played again, but we fully understand the safety of the public is paramount.

“We have been in constant contact with the FAWNL and they have a meeting about the current season early next week, once we hear from them we will know a lot more about where we stand in the current situation.

“We as staff have remained active, and plans are in place here for this season as well as the next one too, we’re all keen to get back to it but of course the health of everyone connected with the club is the most important thing at this time.

“The players have been making sure they all stay fit during this time, without any training or games. Luke Gray has created a training programme for them all to work with and myself, Andy Butler and Nick Buxton have all been in contact to check in on the squad regularly too.

“We want everyone to keep safe in their own homes, not just those associated with the club but everyone, while at the same time remaining active in line with the new government guidelines - that is, above all, the most important thing.”

Green also wanted to thank everyone at Club Doncaster for their support over recent weeks, as he said the way everyone within the organisation has come together shows that we are more than just a football club.

He added: “I’d like to take the time to say thank you to everyone within Club Doncaster for the way they have come together at the most difficult of times, the team ethic shown by everyone to band together and work for each other has been great to see.

“It shows that Club Doncaster is more than just the Belles, the Rovers or the Dons, it’s about supporting the community and the way everyone has acted to ensure we are all in the safest position possible is something that shouldn’t go unnoticed.

“We’ll be looking to maintain the good engagement we have had with supporters over the past few months, we are still here for our fans and they’ll continue to be a big part of what we do.”
