Gill bows out
Women's football's most capped player bowed out of top level football this weekend after a record-breaking career.
Gill Coulthard played her last F.A. Women's Premier League match for Doncaster Belles on Sunday, and went out in style with a 1-0 victory over Charlton in their National Division match.
Coulthard, who has been with the Yorkshire side since the age of 12 and amassed a record 119 caps for England, was applauded onto the pitch by both teams as she made her final appearance before retiring from the game.
Club spokesman Martin Sill said: "She will be sadly missed and replacing her will be nearly impossible. She was a great role model for the younger players.''
Belles' winner came from another veteran, Karen Walker, who headed home from a Karen Burke cross four minutes into the second half.
The victory secured the F.A. Women's Premier League runners-up spot for Belles for the second successive season and means they will face Treble winners Arsenal in next season's Charity Shield curtain-raiser.
Coulthard, the former England captain, retired from international football last October, and now has a coaching role in the National Women's Football Academy, Durham."
