MEGAN RAPINOE'Hardhitting and clear sighted.' THE TIMES'Impassioned . . . joyous.' SPECTATORDISCOVER THE STORY OF THE WOMEN WHO PAVED THE WAY FOR THE LIONESSESThis is the astonishing history of women's football: from the game's first appearance in England in the late nineteenth century to the incredible teams that at their height drew 53,000 spectators to Goodison Park, through to its fifty-year ban in the UK and the aftershocks when restrictions were lifted.

Following the game's meteoric rise in recent years, Suzanne Wrack considers what the next chapter of this incredible story might - and should - be. 'A thoroughly entertaining and enlightening read.'CLARE BALDING'A fantastic book on how the game has developed and what its future could hold.'PHIL NEVILLE'A compelling narrative . . .
