Belles name new manager

The Belles today announced their new first team manager as ex-Leeds United and Doncaster Rovers winger, the 41 year old, John Buckley. John will also run the football academy. Gail Borman will become the assistant manager.

John has attained all the major coaching badges and plaudits from fellow professionals, and has recently coached at Hull City.


Born:East Kilbride
Date of birth:18 May 1962
Playing career:1984-1988

  • John's footballing career began when he signed schoolboy forms at Queens Park, with a dream move to Celtic coming when he was seventeen years old, in the 1979/80 season.
  • A move to Partick Thistle followed four years later.
  • Rovers manager Billy Bremner signed him from Partick in July 1984, and he developed into a skilful winger with good close control of the ball.
  • He moved to Elland Road shortly after Rovers manager Bremner, but he struggled to make an impact at the higher level.
  • A loan period at Leicester...
  • was followed by a return to Belle Vue on loan in the 1987/88 season...
  • before he moved to Rotherham in the 1987/88 season.
  • After two seasons at Scunthorpe...
  • he returned to Millmoor, but he suffered a horrific injury leaving him with a skull injury that left him briefly on a life-support machine. Fortunately, he recovered, but he never played senior football again.
