Molly Seaton Footballer
« on: August 06, 2019, 04:48:44 AM »
Hi. My name is Steve and I recently had a superb article printed in the Belfast Telegraph about Big Molly and the Linen Girl footballers back in the 1920s and 1930s.
Could anyone help with photos or other info?
The info on a previous post was very helpful.
I would just like to clarify that she was exceptionally tall for a women footballer of those days. I estimate her to have been about 5ft 10in. In the pic she is stood next to Carmen Pomies who was the same height as Lizzy Ashcroft (my granny) and Lily Parr at 5 ft 8in. Exceptionally tall for womem of that time.
