History of the side
Black Annis Breakfasting in Lincoln
Black Annis was formed some time around 1982 (if we had known how long we would be around, we might have been more careful to note the date.) We are an all-women team or “side”, named after Leicester’s famous witch who used to live in a cave in the Dane Hills area. We wear purple, green and white (Suffragette colours) and have a bit of a reputation for being somewhat feisty. We have mellowed somewhat as we have grown up and although still feminists (what sensible woman isn't) we are slightly less loud and hard drinking than we used to be.
