Midfielder Bethany England has hailed the early impact of Glen Harris, labelling the new Doncaster Rovers Belles boss as 'outstanding'.
The 20-year-old, who was the club's joint top scorer last season with Sue Smith on 14 goals, was part of the Belles side that just missed out on promotion into FA WSL1 on the final day of last season.
Harris, who replaced Gordon Staniforth following his departure in October, steered the Belles towards a win in their first competitive game this season - a 3-0 FA Women's Cup victory over London Bees in early February.
Doncaster ace England, who is studying for an LLB law degree at BPP University's base in the centre of Manchester, believes there's much more to come from former Lincoln City Ladies chief Harris.
"Glen is great. I think he is an outstanding coach," said England who is entering her fifth season with the Belles. "He's very approachable and I feel he connects well with the players.
"He is continuously giving us feedback from our performances in games as well as training. He knows what he expects from the players and vice versa.
"I think bringing him into the club was great for the Belles and I have no doubt that his impact will be apparent come the end of the season."
With two promotion spots up for grabs in this year's FA WSL2 season, England - who was on the scoresheet against London - believes the BPP-sponsored Belles can go one step further and win promotion into FA WSL1.
"Last season was probably one of our best seasons to date since I have been at the club," said the England Under-23 midfielder.
"However, I have no doubt that we can better ourselves from last season, get into FA WSL1 and really show how capable we are as a team and that we should be competing in the top flight."
