Kicking Against Tradition: A Career in Woman's Football Wendy Owen is a significant figure in the history of British women's football. A powerful centerback, she starred for the English national side at a time when the sport really took off. They played their first international match against Scotland in 1972, and were the first to train on the pitch at Wembley Stadium and to travel to Europe to play countries such as Holland, France, and Italy. Appearing in 16 out of 18 internationals in the mid-1970s, she now coaches at a high level and is a lecturer in sports science. Wendy recounts her experience as part of the first Women's England Squad, the media coverage they attracted and what it was really like for a female footballer on tour in the '70s. She further examines the way the game has evolved to become the fastest growing sport in the UK today.
