Doncaster Rovers Belles are moving up into the FAWSL 1 in style! Adam sits down with Doncaster Chair Lady Faye Lygo to discuss the team’s recent promotion and major announcement. As the Belles prepare for their ascent, they also are laying out a multi-million pound plan for a state-of-the-art training facility and full-time, professional contracts to a number of players.
Having been a pioneering figure in the women’s game for over 45 years, the six-time FA Women’s Cup winners and twice Women’s Premier League champions are continuing their rich tradition of trailblazing by spearheading ambitious plans to build the first dedicated elite women’s training facility in the UK.
