Gail Newsham Interview

As a football loving girl growing up in Preston in the 80s and 90s I had heard lots about Dick Kerr ladies. Listening to Gails interview has brought back so many memories of playing in the north west as a tiny 14yr old girl, as well as reminding me of how inspiring the Dick Kerr ladies were and are still today. Thanks for a wonderful interview and thanks Gail for continuing to tell the story.
