Football Icons: Lily Parr’s Legacy

Quite Unsuitable For Females

29-04-2022 • 1 hr 8 mins

We kick off the pod with an episode inspired by the statue of Lily Parr, England’s first female football star. Lily’s groundbreaking career began in 1919, but her impact on the game is still felt over one hundred years later.

We find out what it means to be a football legend today, and the importance of role models and representation for women and non-binary players and fans.
