A Dick, Kerr Ladies talk with Steve Bolton

Blackpool’s links with women’s football stretch back to 1921. Key football games were hosted at Blackpool including an early ‘Wales vs England’ ‘International’. In the 1920s and 1930s two significant Dick Kerr Ladies hailed from Blackpool: Lily Buxton and Hilda Parkinson. The legendary French teams under the leadership of Carmen Pomies loved Blackpool and Blackpool loved them! Every single tour included a visit to Blackpool.

Join us for this fascinating talk, where Steve Bolton explores Blackpool’s links with the women’s game.
