Fiona Crawford

Fiona Crawford is a writer, editor, and researcher whose work spans social and environmental issues, the arts, and football.

Rae Dower

Rae Dower

Rae’s 44 year love affair with the beautiful game started as a 6 year old in the northern suburbs of Brisbane. With no junior girl’s league, and not allowed to play with the boys, she had to wait until the following year before playing in the inaugural Brisbane U14 Girl’s Competition. Retiring from playing in 2004, Rae travelled Australia and the world representing Queensland and Australia at Schoolgirls, Youth and Senior team level.
