Club Doncaster can confirm the departure of Russ Green as chief executive officer of Doncaster Rovers Belles.
Green has carried out the role of CEO for four years, overseeing a period of great change for the Belles and he leaves the club in a strong position for growth.
Chris Wood will temporarily take on the role of strategic lead for the Belles and will be responsible for preparations for the 2023/24 season, including drafting future structures and strategies.
Wood has a good deal of experience in the position, having previously held the roles of head of women’s football and girls academy manager at Tamworth FC.
The planning process for the Belles’ coming campaign in the FAWNL Division One is well underway with the appointment of a new manager set to be finalised in due course while trials for new players began last week.
Club Doncaster chief executive Gavin Baldwin said: “I’d like to place on record my heartfelt thanks to Russ for his time and great work with the Belles over the last four years. He has provided us with a great platform from which we can continue to build the Belles back up and is a character that will be sorely missed at the club.
“We have full confidence in Chris Wood that he will lead a united club into the new campaign with common objectives and great energy. He has an excellent track record and has fully embraced the challenge ahead.
“Plans are already in place for the new season and we feel we have made the necessary resources available to support those goals.
“This is an exciting period for the Belles as they face the challenges of a new division and we are confident the club will head into the season with real strength.”
All at Club Doncaster thank Russ for his service and wish him the very best for the future.
