Product description

Spine-tingling football thrillers. If you’re dead into football, these books are for you! It all starts when circles of scorched earth start popping up in Halifax: on the moors, the parks and the football pitches. People are freaked out, but Seth is really scared. He knows something awful is happening. The past is coming to life, and dark forces are attacking his town. Can Seth and his buddy Nadiya become the Defenders: stopping the evil while kicking a ball around?

  • A chilling series of football ghost stories from a top author
  • Tom Palmer is the creator of the Football Academy series
  • Uses the classic Barrington Stoke dyslexia-friendly format
  • Ideal for newly confident readers moving on to the next step
  • Designed to make longer books accessible to more readers
  • Each book links to a KS2 history topic – Vikings, Celts or Romans

Interest age 8-12. Reading age 8.

“Plenty of adventure, jeopardy, blood and thunder and mixing it all in with a good dollop of the country’s favourite spectator sport.” The Letterpress Project
