I joined the Party in 76 and was active in the YS until going onto college. I supported the paper Socialist Organiser until 1989 and set up Socialist Students in NOLS. From then I went into the politics of women in sport and set up the Northern League of womens football and a team which made it to the FA Women’s Premiership. In 2002 I published a novelised account of the struggles of working class women footballers called Kicking The Boys Balls. I am a member of Reading East and PCS.
