First of all I would like to apologise if this is not allowed on the forum, I have nothing to do with this petition but think it needs as many signatures as possible, I run a kids football team and although we have no girls playing we have come across some teams that do, from what I have seen they enjoy the football so should be allowed to carry on, please read below
The FA banned women from playing on any public pitch in 1921 and in doing so stop dead the revolutionary explosion of women's football, which was more popular than mens football at the time. On Boxing Day 1920: The biggest ever crowd recorded for a women's game in England took place when 53,000 people watched Dick Kerr's Ladies beat their closest rivals, St Helen's Ladies, 4-0.
In 1969 The Women's Football Association was formed with 44 member clubs.
It wasn't until 2 years later, 50 years after closing the door and banning them playing, that the FA lifted the ban and allowed women to play on affiliated Clubs pitches.
Now 36 years later we are still fighting for equality.
