LoveReading View on Girls FC 7: So What if I hog the ball ?

Girls FC is a series that has filled a gap brilliantly for the ever increasing numbers of football mad girls aged 7-11.  Narrated by 10 year old midfielder Jenny-Jane Bayliss the book is packed full of football and friendship.  The Parrs Under 11s kick off their second season but Jenny-Jane isn’t happy, she’s fed up of everyone getting at her, especially her horrible family.  All she wants to do is play football – why can’t they just leave her alone?

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’

Girls FC 7: So What if I hog the ball ? Synopsis

Girls FC: the best team for football and friendship. Nothing seems to be going right for ten-year-old Jenny-Jane Bayliss. First, a fire at her team's clubhouse stops her from celebrating her birthday, then the coach starts getting on at her for hogging the ball too much - and then, worst of all, her horrible brother Billly-Ray orders her to start stealing again. This time from her team-mates. Jenny-Jane doesn't know what to do. If she doesn't do it, he'll make her life unbearable, but she can't steal from her friends - can she? 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.
