***WINNER OF A SUNDAY TIMES SPORTS BOOK AWARD*** A TIMES SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR LONGLISTED FOR THE WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR 'A truly important book.' MEGAN RAPINOE 'Hardhitting and clear sighted.' THE TIMES 'Impassioned . . . joyous.' SPECTATOR DISCOVER THE STORY OF THE WOMEN WHO PAVED THE WAY FOR THE LIONESSES This 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 . . . The history of the women's game has been long overlooked. This book celebrates it, and the teams and individuals who helped the sport develop into today's nationally and internationally recognized phenomenon.' TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT 'Wrack is something of a trailblazer herself . . . few would be better placed to write its history.' IRISH TIMES
