New Women’s Sports Writing

New Women's Sports Writing: New in 2023, this award is named in honour of Vikki Orvice, a sports journalist who championed female sports writing. 


This is the astonishing history of women's football: from the game's first appearance in England in the late nineteenth century to the incredible teams that at their height drew 53,000 spectators to Goodison Park, through to its fifty-year ban in the UK and the aftershocks when restrictions were lifted. Following the game's meteoric rise in recent years, Suzanne Wrack considers what the next chapter of this incredible story might - and should - be.
