    Making History - Live from the North London derby

    Making History - Live from the North London derby

    At last weekend's record-breaking North London derby, Rachel hosted an episode of Upfront alongside Arsenal FC and INMOTION in front of a live audience.
    Join her as she sat down with Lucy Monkman - aka Monki - and Arsenal-mad content creator Bella Andrewartha to assess the state of women's football. We reminisce about an incredible summer and dig into ways we can capitalise on the unprecedented momentum now around the women's game without compromising its soul.

Upfront an essential listen for Womens football

Such a great and fun to listen to someone new to Women’s football. The women are just as enjoyable to listen to as the Ramble team. No higher praise
