Manager Andy Butler was pleased with the resilience and the character shown by the team as the Belles scored late on to take a point in a entertaining game against Boldmere St Michaels.

Belles took an early lead when Jess Price slotted home, but the visitors drew things level on the half-hour mark and took the lead midway through the second half. Belles never-say-die attitude shone through and Lauren Breen, on her return to the side, headed home an equaliser in injury time to take a point.

Butler said: “We started well today and got that early goal. Then to score in the last minute showed the endeavour and character of the team.

“We kept digging in, the goal was superb, great cross by Sophie Bell finding Breeny (Lauren Breen) and a great header too. A great way to return to the side."

Butler spoke about the players coming back from injury which could be key for the rest of the season.

He added: “We have a few players coming back from injury and they are chomping at the bit to get into that starting eleven.

“I want the whole squad to be pushing each other and we have the quality to go forward for the rest of the season."
