Football: Grounds for hope at Donny.

Byline: By TONY LEIGHTON

IT'S a big day for Don-caster Belles as they step out for the first time at their new Keep-moat Stadium for a Yorkshire derby against Leeds United.

The Belles are sharing the new 15,000-seat stadium with Football League club Doncaster Rovers and Rugby League club Don-caster Lakers. And captain Vicky Exley, in her 13th season with the Belles, can't wait for kick-off.

"This is the most exciting thing that's happened to the club since I've been here," said Exley. "Playing on a perfect pitch at this fantastic stadium will be a massive boost for us and this first game, especially as it's against Leeds, is going to be a great experience."

Adding to the derby flavour will be the fact that Leeds have several former Belles in their ranks, including manager Julie Chipchase and ex-England winger Karen Burke.

Victory for Leeds could see them reclaim top spot from Arsenal.
