Belles ready to go again

Belles chief executive Russ Green says everything is ready to go for the club to spring back into action as soon as the Government and Football Association give them the ok to do so.

The latest lockdown restrictions mean the FAWNL Division One Midlands fixtures scheduled for November were suspended, with training also put on hold.

Green said: “Of course it was frustrating for us because we were making such progress on and off the pitch, moving up to second in the table and getting close to 300 people safely attending our most recent home league game.

“We know how much the Belles means to all the fans that kept on backing us, whether it was in person at our games or via social media when they were unable to get to away fixtures. We were really looking forward to some home games, but we’re well set to have a real crack at the games once we’re told we can start back up.”

Rossington Main have provided great support to the Belles since the season started, ensuring all players, staff and supporters have enjoyed home fixtures safe.

Green added: “I can’t thank Carl, Emma and the team enough - they’ve worked closely with us to ensure we could put on our games safely - and I think that showed in the positive feedback we received from everybody who attended.

“They will be taking a real hit with their activities on hold, too, but everyone at the Belles looks forward to getting back down there as soon as we can.”
