New Belles
« on June 04, 2019, 04:30:30 pm by graingrover »
After a long long and no doubt difficult negotiation with the Lygo family The Belles are now in the fold and care of Club Doncaster .Had the negotiations been done in a better way the club may have been able to stay in The Championship and not have to self relegate to the National League and loose all the first team .Following a second consecutive relegation the new Belles have to start from a much lower base .However three  have Julie Chipchase  who is a vital part of their DNA and have appointed a new CEO to replace Mrs Lygo.It will be interesting to see who they have appointed and what the plans are  for the next few years and what players they  decide to recruit ...if any since they are now engaged in developing youngsters again .

I really hope so.  I played for their second string back in their heyday when nearly all the team were internationals.

Could be a bit like the story of Rovers dropping into the Conference and rebirth. Obviously no ill will from the Lygos.

They only kept the club afloat during the WSL years. The only negative aspect of their time in charge was an apparent reluctance to develop links with the men's club.

There was that bizarre splash in the press about the Belles under Lygo developing a super duper training academy with flags, bells and whistles all over the place. I believe they even said the site had been selected and construction work was due to start very shortly after the press launch. So either something went very badly wrong very quickly with the Lygo business, or, there was something very odd going on.
