The West Lancashire Girls League Committee are deeply saddened to
learn of the passing of Carol Smith, the inaugural Chairperson of the League.
Carol, along with her husband John, was one of the founders of our league, and worked tirelessly in
those initial years to fulfil Andy Nixon’s vision of competitive football throughout the area for girls of all abilities. It is no exaggeration to say that without Carol’s commitment and effort in
those early years, those same opportunities would not have been available for literally thousands of girls and young women over the last two decades.
Carol and John also worked tirelessly to provide opportunities for young girls through their own
club, Red Robins, and numerous players had the opportunity to learn from them and grow their skills.
We would like to take this opportunity to publicly express our condolences to John and her family.
Her contribution to the lives of so many young people should never be underestimated.
Carol Smith – Rest in Peace.
