Lauren Breen says it feels like she is back home after marking her first outing for the Belles since rejoining the club with a goal.
Breen scored the Belles' first in Sunday's 7-1 win over a Leeds United development side in what she felt was a perfect return to action.
She said: "Getting a goal so early was great, it really calmed any nerves and allowed me to settle into the game.
"Being back with the Belles feels like coming home, I already knew a lot of the girls so it's been easy to fit back in and it's like I never left. They're all welcoming and it's always felt like home."
Breen will be in line for her second outing back with the Belles on Sunday when they take on Stockport County in a behind-closed-doors game.
