Now in its second year, the Sport in History Undergraduate Essay Prize is awarded to exceptional undergraduate work in the field.

Despite disruption to the 2019-20 academic year, a number of institutions across the UK submitted very strong entries on behalf of their students, and the winner was Lili Donlon-Mansbridge of Cambridge University, for her paper ‘Femininity, Sexuality and English Women's Football, c.1960-c.1990.
