Rotherham United Ladies FC have captured three former players of local rivals Doncaster Belles ahead of their 2013/14 campaign.

The Midlands Women’s Combination outfit are back into pre-season training and have been bolstered by the trio of signings Megan Wilson, Chelsea Burke and Jess Birtles - who had all played for Doncaster Belles. Burke was also part of the Belles’ Women’s Super League squad last season.

The club have forged strong links with its men’s team - a partnership which has led to the Millers offering transport for away games and sponsorship help.

The ladies club are also appealing for further help in the sponsorship stakes.

The club, who play at Roundwood Sports & Social Club in Rawmarsh, have organised friendlies against Radcliffe, Derby County and Edlington in preparation for their first game of the new campaign at home to newly-promoted Mansfield Town LFC on August 18.
