What an incredible year of celebration we had in 2017 to commemorate the success of the Dick, Kerr Ladies in their centenary year. The first Blue Plaque in the world dedicated to a women's football team, was unveiled at the factory where they were formed during the First World War. Still a working factory on a busy main road on Strand Road in Preston, the plaque was unveiled by relatives of two former players from the original team. David Coulton and Valerie Conn, the grandchildren of Grace Sibbert and Alice Kell respectively, performed the unveiling on 18 May 2017 in what was a landmark day in the history of women's football. The first in the world for the best in the world!  Click on the links to see how history was made.
