Playing to the Finnish indeed….England 3 Finland 2..Carney’s 88th minute winning strike just enough.*Lily Parr led England many times during and just after the first World Wa,r playing to crowds of 50,000 and more,.for the Dick Kerr Ladies team.Did anyone spot the great team pic circa 1916 in the Mail on Sunday 5th June? ..Also see ‘Dick Ker Ladies Team’ poem in Crispin’s Corner if interested?.
