The debut children's novel from the legendary Lioness takes inspiration from the pioneering Dick Kerr Ladies football team as Leah unearths a time capsule in her local park and travels back a century to protest the real-life ban on women's football.
A time-twisting adventure from Leah Williamson, captain of the Euros-winning women's England team, written with debut author Jordan Glover, including illustrations by Robin Boyden, perfect for children aged 8 - 12!
Loosely based on one of Leah Williamson's big inspirations, the Dick Kerr Ladies and their brave protest against the ban on women's football, The Wonder Team and the Forgotten Footballers is a fun adventure that comes from the heart.
When Leah unearths a mysterious time capsule in her local park with her two best friends Mimi and George, she opens up a whole new world of adventure. Transported a hundred years back in time, she finds a women's football team in crisis. Can she and her friends lead them back to victory?
The odds are against them, but time is on their side!
