News of the injury to Sigsworth is another bitter pill to swallow for Belles, who sit bottom of FAWSL1 having lost all eight of their games.

Prolific striker Courtney Sweetman-Kirk also suffered a broken leg in pre-season, while former England forward Natasha Dowie left following the exit of manager Glen Harris.

Belles’ next games is at Liverpool on August 27.
