Grandchester Ladies Football Team have shown their commitment to stamping sexism out of football by appearing in their Bristol and District Challenge Cup tie wearing matching Nipple Tassels.
The record attendance of sixty-four thousand nine hundred and forty at the recreation ground delighted the 'Get Them Out'anti-sexism organisers. Tabitha Bulstrode, chair of the Local Women's Institute said " The depth of feeling amongst the local community is clear from this massive turnout. I'm a little surprised but particularly pleased that so many gentlemen have come along to support us, showing this is a cause for us all to embrace together. We may have had our knockers in the past, but I'm delighted to see the firm stand they are all taking behind us. I think you can see our ladies here are very much in need of support".
Fans cheered in their droves as Captain Angela Harlem, 32, led her team onto the pitch and her pride was clear for all to see. Presenting a united front all through the team, they swung into action with a particularly vigorous warm-up. All the team had their tassels individually sponsored, with full back Norma Anstruther advertising a chain of local stores throughout the home penalty area.
The passionate display from Grandchesters finest attracted attention from areas of the media not previously associated with the Anti-Sexism crusade. Sky Head of Progamming Charlie "When we heard about the 'Get Them Out' campaign, the outside broadcast team volunteered to a man and we had no hesitation calling back Andy Grey and Richard Keys to commentate on such an exceptional match"
Sadly the game didn't quite go so well for the girls as they conceded at both ends and were soundly beaten, but nevertheless not one of their fans left before the final whistle. Dissapointed striker Martha Nahanful summed it up for the team when she said "We may have come here and slipped out of the B D and C Cup, but I think looking round these stands we've raised a hell of a lot awareness"
