Andy Butler’s side had been disappointed to only draw with Long Eaton United at the Keepmoat Stadium in their previous game and took their frustration out on Leek by racing into a 4-0 lead by half time.

Saxton got the ball rolling after eight minutes after getting through on goal before Khan doubled Belles’ lead from close range.

Dinsdale headed home the third, Andrew converted from the penalty spot after Khan was fouled and Saxton put the icing on the cake in the second half after again going clear and rounding Leek’s goalkeeper. New signing Lindsey Tugby again impressed in midfield.

Belles travel to Wem Town on Sunday.
