Gda Music BS: Why I dislike women's football... (142* d) RE: BS: Why I dislike women's football... 02 Jul 19

In my now 87 years I have never had cause to watch any women`s football games. This despite the fact that both my Mother (Cissy Smith) and her twin sister (Florrie Smith) b.1901 loved the game and being club members of The Dumfries Ladies Eleven used to train in Dumfries at their Palmerston Park ground during and after the 1914/18 war. My Mum (inside right) would always mention having scored a goal against the famous Dick Kerr French team, but I just wish now that I had paid more attention to all the talk and happenings of that period. It seems that they both went to Carlisle to work at the vast munitions factory for the then war effort where evidently other girls were keen too on playing and watching the women`s game.

I certainly can recall the shock of 1950 mens soccer World Cup when the part-timers from the USA knocked England out, we heard it all live on the radio and yes....still shocks!

However, the important ladies game tonight, Tues 2nd - USA v England I will be watching, especially for my Mum in her rightful Queen of the South position at inside right.
