  • The FA Girls’ Football Festival in association with Continental Tyres visited Hull, on Tuesday 1st July. The event was attended by 364 girls from local schools who got in the festival spirit at the University of Hull Sports and Fitness Centre, as they took part in the free programme aimed at increasing and retaining participation in the game. The event was organised with the support of the East Riding County FA and Hull City AFC Tigers Sport and Education Trust. The participants, aged 5-16 years old, were accompanied by Doncaster Rovers Belles players Nicola Hobbs and Millie Bright, who took part in all of the activities on offer, including a question and answer session, giving the girls an insight into what its like to be an FA WSL footballer.

  • On Saturday 7th June, the Belles lent their support to a charity event. The weather couldn’t dampen the spirit as a number of our senior and development players supported the event in aid of Breast Cancer Care. The event took place at Hemsworth Community college and was organised by Lynne Heckler, the mum of ex-Belles player Emily Heckler. The funday was attended by many, with children enjoying the funfair rides and adults enjoying a kick about, which even saw our very own Ash Mills trying her luck in the net and gaining herself a new fan in the shape of Chris Chittle who plays Eric Pollard in Emmerdale. There was of course a serious note to the day, and that was to raise awareness into a disease that affects so many of us. Whilst breast cancer affects predominantly women it is not unknown for men to be diagnosed, so it is vitally important that we are all aware of the signs and symptoms to look out for. We are delighted to be able to support this charity, are would urge you to take a look at Breast Cancer Cares website for further information, http://www.breastcancercare.org.uk/breast-cancer-information/breast-awareness and if you are at all worried the please contact your GP. The second half of the season will see one of our office staff share her story in a match day programme as we continue to raise awareness.
