The Lovereading4Kids comment

Nine-year-old Megan Fawcett loves football and is desperate to be on her school team. She tries everything to get the coach to notice her, even wearing a tiara! But nothing works… Then she has a brainwave – she’ll set up her own team. An all-girls team! Now all she needs is a pitch, a coach … and ten other players. Girls FC is a series that has filled a gap brilliantly for the ever increasing numbers of football mad girls aged 7-11. This is the first in the series.

A message from Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson
‘This book makes football a fun activity that isn’t just for boys and I hope reading the series will encourage more girls to get involved in sport from an early age’
