Ahead of England Lionesses vs Netherlands in the UEFA Women’s Nations League on Friday night, we’re expecting a very special legacy Lionesses cap to be handed out.

Terri Hinton (nee Irvine) was one of Berkshire’s very first Lionesses and featured at the inaugural Women’s European Championships in 1984 where England made it through to the final.

In an exclusive piece for Football in Berkshire earlier in 2023, Dave Read wrote of Hinton’s journey: Back in the early 1970’s Berkshire had a flourishing Ladies football scene with teams in Reading, Newbury and two clubs in Bracknell, the Bracknell Bullitts and Bracknell Ladies. It was around this time Terri Hinton (nee Irvine) started her footballing journey which would culminate in travelling around the world during her six-year stint as an England Ladies international.

Football in Berkshire would like to salute a true pioneer of the women’s game and a deserving cap recipient.

Terri was able to watch on as Sarina Wiegman’s Lionesses came from 2-0 down to beat Netherlands 3-2 courtesy of a late Ella Toone winner. In the England line up was Hinton’s fellow Berkshire Lioness Fran Kirby.
