  • Short Summary

    Great footage of a women's football team in training - boxing, exercising, riding bicycles and a horse.

  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Weaker sex?" said the Captain of the famous Dick Kerr Women's Football Team. "Not much weakness about us." Watching their training we agreed."

    Girls in great striped football shirts and jaunty matching hats perform various training exercises. The women run around the football field, ride three to a bicycle, spar, throw a football to each other, do knee-bend exercises and leapfrogs. One team member rides a horse. A couple of the girls box whilst others look on and laugh.

    The team sit on the ground in striped kit massaging their own legs whilst a female masseur shows them how it should be done. We then see the girls play. C/U of two team members with their arms around each other.

    Was originally an item in Eve's Film Review - issue number unknown.

    See also "Eve and the Noble Art" in can EP030.

    Note: This story was reedited by Julian Del Guidice in 1999. Was originally split into two sections: Ladies Football Team from can EP061 and Playing Adam's Game from can EP020. We believe that these two sections may have been part of the same original story and Julian has attempted to retain the integrity of the original editing sequence.
