They selflessly saved the war effort on the home front during WWI and still found time to play football!
The incredible story of women’s football during WWI and how Blyth Spartans Ladies won the Munitionettes Cup in 1918.

Despite their daily hard, physical work – and competition from dozens of other women’s football teams in the region – Blyth Spartan Ladies became the best side in the North East. These heroic munitionettes have been largely forgotten… until now!

From the team behind Carrying David, Hadaway Harry, The Great Joe Wilson and Mr Corvan’s Music Hall.
