Girls FC by Helena Pielichaty

Girls FC is the best team for football and friendship. This twelfth book in the series comes round full circle as Megan Fawcett, whose brilliant idea it was to set up the team in the first place, takes up the story again. Women's football is the fastest growing sport in the world. In the UK, one million girls play and more than 9,000 girls' teams are registered with the FA. In 2010 Walker Books paired up with the English Schools Football Association, which reaches out to 30,000 girls and 6,000 teachers, to make Girls FC the official sponsor of its National Under 11s Girls seven-a-side cup.


Helena Pielichaty has a light touch and an effortless way of telling a story. (Anne Cassidy) 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. (Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson)
