Girls FC: Do Goalkeepers Wear Tiaras?

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Megan Fawcett loves football. The problem is, Mr Glasshouse, the teacher in charge of picking people to play on the school team, never seems to notice her – even when she wears a tiara onto the pitch.

Yet when Megan visits her auntie, who works at a football club, she becomes aware of the Parrs, their women's team. What would happen if, perhaps, the Parrs had a junior girls' team too?

The first in a great series about a girls' football team, Do Goalkeepers Wear Tiaras? is a hugely engaging, easy to read story that all football fans will adore. There's plenty of football content in the books, but it never overshadows a great story about girls who are passionate about their sport.
