WOMEN'S FOOTBALL: Shel's happy to be a Belle.
SHELLY KERR has swapped a title fight in Scotland for a battle to beat the drop down south.
The former Killie favourite has quit the Ayrshire club along with Nicky Grant to join struggling Yorkshire outfit Doncaster Belles.
Kerr and Grant only met their new team-mates for the first time last Sunday before making their debuts in a 3-1 defeat to second-top Charlton.
That result leaves the Belles propping up the rest in the English Premiership but Kerr remains confident the club can pull off the great escape.
She said: 'It's going to be tough. We're a young side after losing some of our experienced players.
'But we have five games left to turn things round and four of them are at home, so hopefully we'll get the points we need.'
Kerr's former club are still without a boss and namesakes FC Kilmarnock Girls are also on the look-out for a new manager.
Scott Ferguson is currently in charge of the First Division side on a caretaker basis but he's not interested in taking the job on permanently.
He said: 'We're looking for someone who preferably has experience of management in the women's game. But it's not essential, enthusiasm is the key.'
Anyone interested in the post should contact Ferguson on 01563 526814.
