A civic reception is planned for the Doncaster Belles to recognise the team’s promotion.

Civic Mayor Paul Wray said: “I will be writing to the Belles to offer my congratulations, and plan to invite them to a civic reception at the Mansion House once the season is finished. Their achievements this season have been fantastic and we should all be rightly proud of the team.”

Belles won 2-1 at London Bees last month to guarantee the club promotion – and a return to FA Women’s Super League for the first time since their controversial demotion in 2013.
