On 7 May 1881 the first ever women’s international took place in Edinburgh’s Easter Road stadium.

Organised by suffragette Helen Matthews, two teams representing Scotland and England played out a 3-0 win for the home side in front of a crowd of just over 1,000.

This was long before women’s football clubs, and was the first organised fixture of its kind for any of these players.
