CHRIS UNWIN
 
We recently heard about the sad passing of Chris Unwin, a founder of NIWFA in the 1970s.
 
Chris was a formidable advocate for women’s football at both league and international level. He went above and beyond to provide women and girls with the opportunity to play football and be equipped to play for football, including providing lifts to and from training and matches, providing food and snacks pre and post matches, sourcing sponsorship when women’s football was not seen as a bankable activity. Chris was one of the people who had to do the very hard graft to make the future of women’s football more accessible to us in the present day.
 
Chris, who hailed from Bangor, was also known for setting up and managing Post Office Dynamos, a team that provided many Northern Ireland international players in the 1980s and 1990s.
 
 
The Post Office Dynamos celebrate winning the NIWFA Cup in 1988.
