A woman who played in England’s first official women’s international football game says it would “be nice” to have an FA cap.
As the Lionesses celebrated their Euro 2022 triumph, England’s original women have been reflecting on their experiences more than 40 years ago.
Pat Firth, who scored a hat-trick in the 8-0 win over Scotland at Manor Park in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, in 1973, said the current team “did the whole country proud”.
In 1973 she received handmade caps, she said, made by Flo Bilton of the Women’s FA, and has an ongoing campaign to be recognized with an official cap.
