Forward Chloe Bethell has left the Belles to rejoin her hometown club Ripon City Ladies.
Bethell, who joined the Belles in 2018, opted to return to Ripon after struggling to balance her playing commitments with life outside of football.
Belles chief executive Russ Green said: "I know this was a difficult decision for Chloe, who has kept us informed throughout the process.
"She lives up in Ripon and travelling down for training and matches is a big ask. The commitment she showed to us over her time at the club was first class but it's time for her to put herself and her family first, and we all wish her all the best for the rest of her career."
Bethell started out playing for Ripon City Panthers as a youngster, also playing for Ripon City Ladies and Leeds United before making her move to the Belles.
