Patricia Gregory is an historian of women’s football in the UK who is embarking on her first book on its history. Patricia became the Hon. Assistant Secretary of the Women’s Football Association from its inception until taking over as Hon. Secretary from Arthur Hobbs in 1972.  A position she held until 1981 when through her encouragement a full time official was appointed –  a full time job, running a club and a league as well as duties for the WFA proved too much.  Prior to becoming an Hon. Life Vice President in 1984, until the dissolution of the WFA in 1993, she served for a year in each capacity as Liaison Officer and Chairman.  She was invited to become a member of the UEFA Women’s Football Committee in 1979 serving 7 terms until 1993.  After the WFA ceased she served for a time on The Women’s Football Alliance Committee of The FA.
