Doncaster Rovers Belles will play their 2022-23 season home games at the Iqbal Poultry Stadium, home of Club Thorne Colliery FC.

Andy Butler's team will bring women's league football to Grange Road as the Belles look to win promotion from FAWNL Division 1 Midlands. 

Belles CEO Russ Green said:"We are delighted to team up with Club Thorne this season and work with Mark Turner and his team - they are a very progressive club. We hope that along with our loyal fanbase, the people of Thorne and Moorends will get behind Andy Butler and the girls as we push for promotion. It promises to be a groundbreaking season in women's football following the fantastic success of the Lionesses, and hopefully the Belles can emulate that by entertaining the fans and winning promotion at the same time. 

Club Thorne Chairman, Mark Phillips commented:"We are absolutely delighted that Doncaster Rovers Belles will be playing their home fixtures out of the Iqbal Poultry Stadium. The timing of this new partnership is perfect, especially considering the Lionesses achievement on Sunday. We can't wait to get started.

The Belles commence their league season away to Lincoln City Women on Sunday 21st August, with the first home game against Sheffield FC being an evening kick off in the week of 29th August (date to be confirmed).

The Iqbal Stadium is located on Grange Road, Moorends, Thorne, DN8 4NH.
