Belles manager Andy Butler was pleased with the performance as his side earned a 1-0 win against Wem Town on Sunday.

The victory extended Belles unbeaten run to five and kept the pressure on other sides at the top of the league. 

Butler said: “Overall, it was a good performance. We need to be more clinical in certain areas, however overall, we deserved the three points today.

“Their keeper pulled off four or five good saves and kept them in the game. It’s an important result for us and credit to everyone that played their part.”

Butler spoke about players returning to the squad as Sophie Scargill made her first appearance since late August.

He added: “It’s going to take a whole squad to get us through the season, of course I want everyone fit and ready for the final stretch.

“We got to keep pushing each other in training, and keep demanding off each other and you never know where it goes.”

With the Belles taking 13 points out of a possible 15 in the last five games. Butler credited the players for the hard work they have done on and off the pitch.

He added: “Ever since me and Nick (Nick Buxton) came to the club two years ago the players have been fantastic, the work rate, the hunger and desire has been first class.

“It’s good to have good backroom staff supporting you and backing you to make the right decisions.

“Overall it’s been a good two years but we want to improve and get better, there are good teams around us and we’ll keep fighting until we cross that line”.
