Donny on the telly! - 26 Feb 2008 - Women's Football NewsDoncaster Rovers Belles are to be the subject of a fly-on-the-wall television series, starting from this week.
In December 2007 the Doncaster Rovers Belles Ladies Football Club were approached by Red TV, a television production company based in Birmingham who broadcast their programmes on SKY channel 186.
As a direct result of watching the England women's football team perform in the 2007 World Cup Finals in Beijing, and discovering that these players who are at the top of their sport received very little reward for their efforts, RED TV were inspired to find out what makes these players strive for excellence week in week out.
87 years ago the passion for the women's game was clear to see. On Boxing Day 1920 the biggest ever crowd recorded for a women's game in England took place when 53,000 people watched Dick Kerr's Ladies beat their closest rivals, St Helens ladies 4-0. However the growth of the game was curtailed in 1921 as complaints were made that football was unsuitable for women and ought not to be encouraged. The women's game has progressed since then and attitudes have changed.
RED TV want to discover what drives women to try and achieve their goal in this male dominated sport. Players, Managers, Coaches, Committee Members, parents and fans are all part of the club and are dedicated to supporting the women's game.
A passion for the sport, a commitment to the club, an inner self belief are only a few of the things that will be evident in this documentary.
Program Manager Vijay Gulwani and Presenter Madeline Roberts came to the Doncaster Rovers Belles Ladies Football Club, the oldest and most famous women's football club in England to find these answers for themselves.
During the making of this series the camera team have been privileged to follow the team for part of the 2007-08 season. They have interviewed many players, in doing so they have profiled their daily activities leading up to the big game at weekends. Some of these players have represented their country in the past; some will go on to do the same in the future.
Managers and coaching staff from the Premier team through to the youngest group of players in the club the under 10s have been questioned to try and understand this passion that all possess for the Doncaster Belles.
The cameras have been present at the many events that the club holds during a playing season, from live band nights to midweek training sessions, home games to away games, all have been recorded to enable RED TV to produce a fascinating piece of work.
