Belles chief executive Russ Green believes the future of the club is as bright as it has been for some time despite the 2019/20 season being drawn to a close by the Football Association.

Football across the planet is on hold due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with the FA confirming on Thursday that league results for the current campaign would be expunged.
Russ said: “We know all the girls, fans and staff were looking forward to getting back out there as soon as they could - but at this time we all consider that secondary to the importance of keeping everyone safe.
“We know the girls have been keeping busy, fans may have seen them put videos of their challenges and training on social media, and with a good few results before this enforced break we can feel very confident the club is on the right track going into the next campaign - whenever that is.”
The earlier than anticipated end to the campaign marks the end of an eventful first season as part of Club Doncaster, sharing resources and staff across departments at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Russ added: “I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but off the pitch we’re in a really good shape now. We have access to experienced professionals across all the areas we need as and when we need to call upon them. Andy Butler and Nick Buxton have come in and all the girls have massive smiles on their faces during training and games, which is what we all want to see. 
“The backing of our fans has been incredible, it’s amazing to see people travelling down from York and Scotland for all our games where they can. You won’t find a better set of supporters in football - we want them to spend the next few weeks and months looking after themselves, I’ll continue chatting to the wider Club Doncaster staff and the coaching staff to make sure we’re ready to go as soon as we get the go ahead.”
