Discover what's on in the Annan area ... below you will find a list of events happening soon in the Annan area.
Women’s Association football was first played in Edinburgh in 1881. Although further matches were played in Scotland throughout the 1880s and 90s, it was during World War One that the women’s game was propelled into the public consciousness like never before.
This exhibition looks at the rise, fall and resurrection of Scottish women’s football from the munition factory teams of World War One to its place on the international sports stage today.
Discover the stories of local teams, players and matches and how football helped to change the perception of women’s roles in society.
