25th March - 2nd April
The brilliant story of heroic WWI Munitionettes who not only selflessly served the war effort on the home front from 1914 to 1918 but also played football to raise money for charity.
Hundreds of Munitionette teams were formed nationally, including dozens in the North East. As tens of thousands of people attended the matches female football superstars were born, including Blyth Spartan's Ladies' striker Bella Reay.
Netting 133 goals in 30 matches, Wor Bella was the Alan Shearer of her day!
Sadly, the incredible story of these self-sacrificing Munitionette footballers has largely been forgotten... until now!
