Pride of the Pitch: Preston's Footballing Icons

Joan Whalley was considered every bit as good a footballer as Sir Tom Finney when she played for the iconic women's football team, Dick, Kerr Ladies.  Find out more about Joan and her team mates, with a rare chance to see photographs and Joan's football boots on loan from the Gail Newsham collection.  Try on a Dick, Kerr Ladies shirt.  Marvel at the incredible contribution Sir Tom Finney made to English football, and things you didn't know about Arthur Wharton and early Preston North End, Invincibles team.

With family activities throughout the summer there is something for everyone to enjoy.
