In the 1920s, Lily Parr was perhaps the most celebrated footballer in England. At a time when women’s football had reached unprecedented levels of popularity, she was the star.
Parr was a pioneer and a role model, a representative for female footballers across the country.
Over her 41-year playing career, Parr did far more than just score goals. She changed the perception of the women’s game, and for that she will be remembered long into the future.
