Lily Parr: Football's first female superstar
Emerging in the 1920s as part of Preston’s Dick Kerr Ladies, Lily Parr scored nearly 1000 goals in a three-decade career.
The new display in the museum's Match Gallery features never before seen photographs of Lily and her teammates which were found in an old suitcase hidden in a loft for four decades.
Lily Parr played in some of the world’s first women’s international matches and was a trailblazer for women footballers around the world. The National Football Museum unveiled a statue of Parr in 2019.
