Jess Andrew was delighted to mark her Belles debut with a crucial goal to rescue an opening-day point on Sunday.
The midfielder struck nine minutes into time added on to ensure the Belles came away from Boldmere with a 2-2 draw.
She said: “It was a great feeling when it went in. It’s great to get a goal but it’s more important to get the result and the girls deserved that.
“Jasmine got down the line and I just thought I should get into the box and see what happens. I knew she would get a ball in, as it came across I thought all I could do was place it and hope for the best and it went in.”
Andrew was asked to play in a slightly unfamiliar holding midfield position due to the absence of captain Kirsty Smith, but she was happy to drop down the pitch to benefit the team.
She added: “It was fine. Sophie and I worked on it in training and Andy has given us a lot of confidence going into the game.
“It was a different position for me but everyone did well in their roles which is all we can ask for. I do try and get in the penalty area and shoot. I’m just a committed midfielder who likes to run box to box.
“I scored a couple in pre-season and I like to get a goal, but I just like to benefit the team in any way I can - if that’s goals then great, but if it’s assists or tackles that’s fine as well.”
