In the lead-up to the Women’s World Cup, we wanted to know what women’s football looked like across the UK.

From the remote pitches of Scotland to the players of London’s Hackney Marshes, we wanted to get to the know the characters behind one of the most exciting growing sports and what it really means to be a woman in football in 2019.

First stop was Manchester where we spoke with professional players Ellie Roebuck (Manchester City) and Ella Toone (Manchester United) about their experiences as young girls playing on pitches dominated by boys and realising they could have a career as a footballer. We stayed local, speaking with This Fan Girl head honcho Amy Drucquer, and musician and Fulham Ladies player Chelcee Grimes about how the sports changed in recent years. And we travelled to Scotland to hang out with football team East Fife Ladies of coastal town, Leven.
