Gordon Staniforth gets Belles job - 7 Nov 2013 - Women's Football News

Gordon Staniforth has been appointed as the new Head Coach at Doncaster Rovers Belles. 
Staniforth was one of four applicants who were shortlisted for the position who each had a practical training session with the club.
The 56-year-old has played for York City, Bristol Rovers and Carlisle United amongst others and was also a former England schoolboy international. He is father to FA WSL star, Lucy Staniforth, who currently plays for Bristol Academy.
Gordon has a wealth of experience both on and off the field and is an FA senior coach and FA women's mentor. He was also recently a co-ordinator at York Centre of Excellence.
Director of Football, Julie Chipchase has said: "We had an impressive long list of applicants who we shortlisted down to four potential candidates.
"We were not being rushed into an appointment and have been careful to put the applicants through a rigorous interview and practical coaching assignment with 360 degree feedback.
"We are not just accepting big reputations we want to get the right strategic fit for the club to progress our 10 year vision for Doncaster Belles to be once again the leading ladies football team in the country."
Gordon Staniforth said: "I am absolutely delighted to be named head coach of the Doncaster Rovers Belles.
"I had been thinking about getting into the Women's Super League since the league was formed and I've always had a soft spot for the Doncaster Rovers Belles.
"I've worked with Julie (Chipchase) for a number of years and we've spoken about the history of the Belles so I know all about the club and what is expected.
"My ambition involves looking at rebuilding. The club deserves success and with my coaching experience I hope I can bring a level of success back to the club. I really buy into Carl Lygo's (club investor) vision for the club and I just can't wait to get started.
"I've already got plans in place and am looking forward to getting out on the pitch with the team and getting ready for WSL2."
