A touching story of family and football for readers aged 8+

Young readers will find much to relate to in this sensitively told and accessible story.

Yet another brilliantly accessible and hugely relatable short novel from dyslexia-friendly publisher Barrington Stoke. This gentle book is packed with empathy, a cast of characters that young readers will immediately relate to and a storyline perfect for young football fans.


Daniel had a hard time when his parents split up and his dad started working abroad. He had to move and start at a new school, but things changed for the better when he started playing football for the Haybrook Rockets. This season the team are in with a chance of winning the Championship, but just as things are looking up for Daniel his dad comes back and the only time he can meet up is a Saturday morning – when Daniel plays football. He doesn’t want to let his dad or his team down, so what is Daniel going to do?

Tony Bradman was born and brought up in London and still lives there. He is the author of multiple poetry and picture books, short and long fiction and educational books and plays.
