The bestselling time-twisting adventure from Lioness Leah Williamson, captain of the Euros-winning England team. Written with debut author Jordan Glover and with brilliant illustrations by Robin Boyden, this is the perfect book for children aged 8 - 12!

It's time to kick off a new adventure!

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 discovers a mysterious time capsule with her two best friends, she opens up a whole new world of adventure! Transported a hundred years back in time, Leah, George and Mimi make an unexpected discovery – women’s football has been banned!

Along with their new friend Dot, Leah and the team must work together to make sure the all-important Championship Cup final still goes ahead. But with a mysterious figure working hard to ruin the team’s chances, Leah is in a race against time to put the clues together and catch the culprit before it’s too late!

Don't miss Leah's next adventures in The Wonder Team and the Pharaoh’s Fortune and The Wonder Team and the Rainforest Rescue!

Mysterious, adventurous and dramatic.
