"Be incredible if we could support the @donnybelles after the @drfc_official 1st team game,” Belles’ head coach tweeted.

“The #Belles have worked so hard this season! Show the support they deserve!!”

Belles won 5-1 against Leafield Athletic on the 4G pitch at the Club Doncaster Sports Complex on Sunday to keep the pressure on leaders Boldmere St Michaels.

Butler’s side trail Boldmere by three points in the race for the one automatic promotion place. Both teams have five games left to play.

Former Rovers captain and interim manager Butler was appointed Belles boss in January 2020 with the team struggling at the wrong end of the fourth tier.
