The Belles squad for the 2020/21 season has been confirmed, with a number of new additions.
Manager Andy Butler will oversee an initial 20-person squad, with seven trialists joining the team after training and playing with the squad throughout pre-season.
Striker Sophie Brown, whose arrival was confirmed earlier in pre-season, is joined by fellow new faces Chloe Dean, Jess Andrew, Phoebe Sneddon, Debbie Barry, Jenna McGee and Charlotte Dinsdale.
Butler said: "We’ve added some good players to the squad, who all enhance what we already have. Sophie Brown is a powerful forward who really puts herself about, Chloe Dean, Jenna McGee, Debbie Barry, Jess Andrew and Phoebe Sneddon will add to our midfield options and Charlotte Dinsdale is a centre-back.
"A few players have opted to move on, we wish them all well and thank them for their efforts while at the club."
