Wor Bella - The must-see new play by Ed Waugh

Council News

 Coming in March/April 2022


The brilliant story of heroic WWI Munitionettes who not only selflessly served the war effort on the home front from 1914 to 1918 but also played football to raise money for charity.


Spartans had Bella Reay (born 1900) at centre forward and in the 1917/18 season, the 18 year old from Cowpen bagged an incredible 133 goals in 30 matches!


Sadly, the brilliant story of the football women of World War I has been largely forgotten. We have to make sure they will be forever remembered!
