THis photo came from a report in the Mercury in August, 1955, when Northwood Ladies were crowned champions at the Matlock British Legion Carnival.

The ladies side beat Drabbles Mill, 2-0, during the encounter on Causeway Lane. It was not until the second half that the deadlock was broken when Hazel Marsden put Northwood ahead with a well-placed lob. Hazel then doubled her team’s tally with a shot from the right wing. The photo shows trainer, Mr J Stevenson and manager Mrs D Twigg with the winning ladies.
