Sylvia Gore dies aged 71

The FA is deeply saddened to learn of the death of women's football legend Sylvia Gore MBE.

Gore was the first female footballer to score for England, in a 3-2 victory over Scotland on 18 November 1972.

Gore, who was a long-standing member of The FA Women?s Committee, once netted 134 goals in a single season and was involved in women's football for 60 years.

She played for Manchester Corinthians and Fodens, helping the latter to shock the all-conquering Southampton in the 1974 FA Women?s Cup Final, before going on to manage Wales in the 1980s.
