Product description

Jake’s quick on the ball, with the spirit to match. He dreams of becoming a professional footballer – even though some people say he’s too short. And when he wins a precious place at the Football Academy, Jake can’t wait to pull on his shirt and join the team! But someone at the club wants to make his life difficult. Can Jake face up to the bullies and become man of the match again?

This gripping tale of football and growing up is winning stuff from a Blue Peter Award nominee. The author, Tom Palmer, has worked with Booktrust and the National Literacy Trust, and was an official writer for the Premier League Reading Stars scheme.
