Reunion for female football heroines

Calling all former female footballers.

The Original Female Soccer Legends are holding a reunion at the Ilinden Sports Centre, Rockdale on February 29.

The group is looking for women who played football in the 1970s and 80s for any club in NSW or Northern NSW, or represented any state or national team.

The group includes members of the St George Ladies team that went undefeated for almost a decade during a run that started in the late 1960s.

They played as an Australian XI in the first women's Asian Cup in Hong Kong in 1975, a possible starting point for the women's World Cup which eventually started in 1991.

Part of the group is Trixie Tagg, the Dutch-born former Australia and St George player who became the first female coach of the Matildas in 1981.

The function starts at noon with a buffet lunch.
