Ladies with football netball

A Dougie Cooper picture, date estimated.

Who are these women, and why are they posing with a football? Is this the result of some daring night time commando-style raid to steal a ball for an underground women's football team? Or something less plausible?

The ladies football team picture I believe 1965. Would Iris Tulloch sitting have been a teacher at a Kirkwall primary school in the 70/s? if so, it would be unbelievable as I lost contact with her and would love to re contact from that seventies period thanks

We were a NETBALL team! Yes, Iris did teach at Papdale. Four of the team became teachers.
