Belles manager Andy Butler has signed a deal to return to Doncaster Rovers as a player.
The experienced defender returned to his hometown club on Friday, a move which allows him to continue his role with the Belles.
He said: “I’m delighted to be back, I haven’t smiled this much for a long time and I feel like I’m coming home.
“It’s a massive boost for myself to get the deal done before the season starts, since it’s been agreed I’ve not stopped smiling.
“I live five minutes from the ground so it’s a move that is good for me, I was running at Cantley Park during lockdown so I’ve never been far away.
“Hopefully the club can see how I can make an impact on the dressing room, I want to push the other lads as much as I can and improve them as well as myself.
“The past few months have been tough for everyone, I know I’m not a spring chicken but I’ve kept myself fit ready for this.
“If people think age is going to hold me back then it’s not, I feel fitter than I have done for a long time.”
