THE photograph of the GEC ladies’ football team (Memory Lane, May 14) was the first time that women were allowed to play on a football pitch that belonged to a professional football team, Hartlepool United.
Also the first time that a female referee was in charge of the game.
Sorry I don’t know the names, only my own.
I am the goalkeeper in the centre of the back row.
We were beaten by Sunderland ladies.
