A hundred years ago Preston's Dick, Kerr Ladies ran out onto the pitch at Deepdale for the first time and impressed a crowd of 10,000 spectators with their skill.

They secured a 4-0 victory over the team from Arundel Coulthard & Co - a win that marked the start of their amazing journey to becoming world champions. Drop into the Discover Preston Gallery to see our display celebrating the Dick, Kerr Ladies success, find out more about their individual stories and take a look at the women's game in Preston today.
