By March 1895 the club members were ready for their first public exhibition. Posters advertising the game were widely distributed, and on the allotted day, March 23rd, ten thousand people made their way to Nightingale Lane, where they were more accustomed to see their local team take on the likes of Tottenham Hotspur. The game was preceded by a match between Crouch End and the 3rd Grenadier Guards, and the ladies did not kick off till nearly quarter to five, when their two teams, designated “North” and “South” took the field wearing all-red, and light and dark-blue outfits respectively.
