  • Description

    Preston, Lancashire.

    Intertitle: "SOCCER by SEARCHLIGHT! Novel game played for ex-service unemployed fund won by Dick Kerrs Ladies' Football Team".

    Night shot of the packed terraces of a football stadium, spectators can be seen waving their hats in the floodlights.

    M/S of the Preston ladies running out of the tunnel in their striped tops, followed by another ladies' team. Dark M/S of the Preston ladies posing in a line. Various shots of the teams standing by the goal and in the centre of the field, in the glare of the artificial lights - very eery!

    Note: other Gazette stories made in this year about woman's football - THE VICTORY SMILE in G 667 and WOMEN FOOTBALLERS in G 662. AH 2000.
