Very sad to hear of the passing of Margaret Turner, legend. Incredibly proud to have followed in her footsteps & played for her side. We can only aspire to be jetting around the globe, sport, for half as long as she did.

“I had to earn my ‘right’ to play. When I was 9 the boys in the playground said no when I wanted to play football...so I stood in the middle and disrupted the game until they let me play!” on her battle to play the national game, over 100yrs after Emma Clarke did so.

And you're unlikely to be a sportswoman. Just 2 out of 200 statues of individual sports people in the U.K. are women.
