Amanda Whittington’s New Play, Atalanta Forever (Your News)

Amanda Whittington’s new play, Atalanta Forever, which looks at the story of the pioneering women in football in 1920 and their struggles with the FA, will be premiered by Mikron Theatre at Manchester’s National Football Museum on 18 April.

Amanda Whittington said: “I was an 11-year-old footballer in the 1980s, the only girl who played in the boys village tournament and I vividly remember being ‘advised’ to stop because it wasn’t appropriate.”
