Researching the heritage of Women's football in Wales with John Carrier

In this episode – recorded as part of the Sporting Heritage Cymru activity funded by Welsh Government – John Carrier discusses how a chance visit to watch Wrexham Ladies FC set him on a journey to research the rich history of women’s football in Wales.

Recorded on the day that former Wales international Laura McAllister is appointed to the UEFA Executive Committee (you can here more about Laura’s life in football here), John discusses some of the key women who blazed a trail; the male administrators and coaches who were allies; the early clubs, many of which were linked to the workplace; and how he tackles his research.
