HERE'S a picture of former Weymouth Football Club winger Ron Moscrop presenting footballer Sue Legg with an award for 'most promising newcomer' the town's new football club for women.

Taken from the Dorset Evening Echo archives of May 1971, the Weymaids Football Club had just celebrated their first anniversary.

The article reports that the footballers had raised £200 for their own kit and travelling expenses and had also raised more than £100 for different charities.

Their anniversary celebration was held at the Waverley Hotel and featured a cake made in the shape of a football pitch.

The cake, complete with miniature goalposts and model players and a referee, was cut by club chairman Bill Dowdney, trainer Ron Moscrop and club captain Diane Griffiths.

The report said that the Weymaids had taken on 12 different women's teams in their first year and had been beaten by only three of them.

Wendy Bevan was awarded the Player of the Year trophy and the award for most improved player went to Pauline Palmer.
