11. Kate Mallin
Midfielder, Huddersfield Town Women (2004- )
475 appearances / 200 goals (as of August 2021)
Kate Mallin is Huddersfield Town Women's longest serving player. She made her debut in October 2004 at the age of just 15, netting her first goal a couple of months later against Hull City. Since then, she has been prolific, playing in almost every position and scoring 200 goals, all while holding down a full-time job. Kate’s skill and determination was formally acknowledged when she was named F.A. Women’s National League Player of the Season in 2016-17.
12. Constance 'Mary' Waller
Chairwoman and Captain of Huddersfield Atalanta Ladies, 1920-1922
Birky-dwelling Constance ‘Mary’ Waller was the founder of the Atalanta Sports Club, as well as the chairwoman and first captain of Huddersfield Atalanta Ladies. In 1921, Waller and her teammates played several high-profile games, including a 1-0 win over Bath Ladies in front of more than 15,000 fans at Leeds Road. They also went toe-toe with Dick, Kerr at Hillsborough, drawing a crowd of 25,000, hosted a French XI side at Fartown, and trained with Town icon Billy Smith. After the F.A. banned women’s football, Waller went on to become the Huddersfield Daily Examiner’s first female journalist, before writing about sport for the national press.
