Belles manager Andy Butler was delighted with the performance as the Belles saw off Leek Town with a 9-2 victory last Sunday.

Jasmine Saxton bagged four, while Jess Price, Sophie Bell, Nadia Khan, Lauren Breen and Lindsey Tugby were also on the scoresheet.

Butler said: “Full respect goes to the players. We want them to go out and express themselves and they certainly did that.

“On Sunday, we saw a team that wants to work together. The bench, the whole squad want to get better want to improve.

“It’s easy to get knocked back after you score one then concede one. It showed that it drove them on to be better and better.”

Butler praised the second half performance especially with the players coming off the bench to make a difference.

He added: “You’ve got players coming back into the squad which will improve us, I said to them, you can’t sit back we’ve got players that will keep pushing and pushing.

“Everyone is making an impact when they are playing, we brought players on to get game time and it worked. It helps improve the team, plus they are encouraging each other which is good."

Butler stressed that there is more to come from the team even with the team six games unbeaten.

He said: “We can focus on what we can improve on, there are little bits and bobs we can improve on. You never stand still, you always move forward and keep working hard.”
