Project Description

In the Footsteps of Giants

‘Quite Unfit for Females’ explores the astounding story of the Preston based Dick, Kerr Ladies football team, arguably the most successful women’s team of all time!

Established in 1917, they played to raise money for soldiers and local Preston Hospitals during World War One.

This brand new performance celebrates the incredible achievements of the pioneering Lancashire women and how they went on to defy a ban on women’s football in 1921, when the FA delivered the bitter blow that football was yes, ‘Quite Unfit for Females’.

Bursting with teamwork, resilience, determination, and fantastic footwork!
