First Evidence of Women's Game in Mackay

The earliest evidence of women’s football we can find in Mackay is school girl’s soccer during the 60s. In an interview Molly Nicholas (local player and referee) explained, “I started with school girl’s soccer in 1967 which was really the start of the Ladies Soccer.” After starting in the school system, Molly stayed in the football community for at least 48 years (most likely more). She was involved with several Mackay clubs (Magpie FC, Wanderers, Wests United FC and DMP). See SAM Weekly’s full interview with Molly below.
