Football fuels this fast-paced novel which stars Nat Dixon, hero of Striker Boy, and still Hatton Rangers’ golden boy. In addition to keeping ahead on the pitch, Nat always has to keep his wits about him to make the secret of his age is not uncovered. Now on a trip to Spain, Nat also has to find out what exactly the family he is staying with is hiding – and find out why there is someone on his tail. All of this, and there’s still a lot of football to be played which means there is exciting action on all levels.

Synopsis

Striker Boy Kicks Out by Jonny Zucker

Hatton Rangers's new golden boy, Nat Dixon is still basking in the glow of his dramatic end to the last Premier League season when the team are invited to play in a mini-tournament in Spain. Nat is still on edge trying to hide the truth about his age from his team-mates and the outside world, especially when he fears it might have been leaked. And he soon discovers that his host family in Spain are covering up a secret of their own. Can Nat get to the bottom of it before something disastrous happens? And who is the mysterious man following him? Meanwhile, on the pitch Nat faces a brute of a Spanish defender, who is determined not to let Nat show him up. Packed with action on and off the field, this is a high-energy adventure story.

Reviews

"I've read loads of children's football novels and this is the best by miles. It's the book I would have loved when I was nine or ten. It's got lightning pace, thrilling football action and fantastic twists and turns - the perfect football novel." - Jonny Gould, Football commentator, ITV, Channel 5, Talk Radio.
