BBC Sport - Women's Super League: Demotion 'saved' Doncaster Belles
Demotion 'saved' Doncaster Belles
- From the section Women's Football
Doncaster Rovers Belles Commercial Director Carl Lygo says the Football Association's decision to 'relegate' them from the top flight of women's football two years ago, stopped the club from folding.
The FA demoted the Belles to Women's Super League 2 after 22-years in the top division following their tender process.
Despite being angry about the decision at the time, the club now say that it actually helped keep them in business.
