Activity: OtherTypes of Public engagement and outreach - Media article or participation


GCU Sports Historian Dr Fiona Skillen and Richard McBrearty, curator at the Scottish Football Museum, join the Common Good Podcast to talk about a new exhibition celebrating Rutherglen Ladies FC, a trailblazing women's football side from the 1920s and 1930s who paved the way for today's superstars. Dr Skillen and Richard discuss how Rutherglen Ladies FC's story had been largely forgotten until very recently, the rise and fall of the club, and how and why this research by Dr Skillen and Steve Bolton has "rewritten the history books" about women's football.
