Kicking Off: Women’s Football in Preston

9 December 2017 – Summer 2018

A hundred years ago Preston’s Dick, Kerr Ladies ran out onto the pitch at Deepdale for the first time and impressed a crowd of 10,000 spectators with their skill.

They secured a 4-0 victory over the team from Arundel Coulthard & Co – a win that marked the start of their amazing journey to becoming world champions. The Discover Preston Gallery offerts a display celebrating the Dick, Kerr Ladies success, where you can find out more about their individual stories and take a look at the women’s game in Preston today.
