I was (to me) surprisingly gripped by the France vs USA game at the World Cup on Friday night. In celebration of this increasingly widening phenomena here is a fab advert for a really interesting exhibition!

An exhibition on the history of football in south Tyneside – featuring a rare 100-year-old photo of a cup winning women’s team – has opened.

More than a Game showcases memorabilia, cups, kits and photos from the 19th Century to present day.

Highlights include a cartoon of tough player “Bumper” Towell and a snap of a women’s cup winning team with England player Mary Lyons from 1919. The free exhibition is at South Shields Museum and Art Gallery.
