Charlie Wilson and Ernest Peake helping the ladies


January 12, 1918
Charlie Wilson, the Liverpool footballer and assistant trainer, is now filling in shells and in his spare time is giving the ladies assistance. He is with Ernest Peake, the Welsh international, training some lady footballers, and it is said that on a frosty day he had to bring-round a lady who had been badly scraped through a fall.

What a rush there will be for the job of trainer to a ladies’ team.
(Star Green ‘Un: January 12, 1918)
