“The Belles were pioneering, incredibly successful across the decades and we are all incredibly proud to be a part of such a historic club. While more recent times have been difficult, we are back on strong foundations and determined to regain our place among the elite in this country.

“The promotion race this season has been another tough one and the intricacies of the league calendar caught up with us in the end but we are confident of going one better next season. And we still have the County FA Cup final to come - our first in 13 years."

Belles will face Huddersfield Town in the County Cup final, also at the Eco-Power Stadium, on Thursday, May 4 (7.30pm).
