Lily Parr Exhibition Trophy
 Women's Football News 17 Jan 2008
Lily Parr Exhibition Trophy - 17 Jan 2008 - Women's Football NewsThe life of Lily Parr, the first woman footballer to be inducted in the National Football Hall of Fame, will be celebrated next month with an exhibition match in Regents Park.
Lily Parr was a footballing genius who lit up the 1920's and 1930's with her antics on and off the field. The FA's 50-year ban of women's football in 1921 took her away from the big stage and the stadium crowds but couldn't daunt her influence on the game or her insistence on being paid in Woodbine cigarettes.
An internationally mixed team from LLKA will play a French lesbian Team, Paris Arc En Ciel in her honour, for the Lily Parr Exhibition Trophy. A possible additional participation from a Spanish Lesbian Team, Panteres Grogues awaits final confirmation.
A small exhibition in the Hub in Regents Park, will document some of the events and reactions to the ban in 1921 and its overturning by the FA in 1971.
The event is supported by the Lorraine Bowen Experience who will help celebrate the day with an appearance at the after-match reception in the Black Cap, Camden.
Kick-off: 3pm
The Hub, Regents Park
(The Zoo end - near Primrose Hill Bridge/Avenue Road)
