Middlesbrough Ladies FC begin North Korea tour


The Middlesbrough Ladies football team have lost their first match of their high-profile North Korea trip.

They were beaten 6-2 by the North Korean women's team April 25 on Sunday.

The visit is the latest event in a relationship which stretches back to the 1966 World Cup when the North Korea team played in Middlesbrough.

During their visit they will play two matches, hold children's coaching sessions and meet some of the members of the 1966 North Korea World Cup squad.
