Interest Age 10-14 Reading Age 8+
A brilliant read for all football – and stats-mad - readers. Scorelines, substitutions, club records and more, Arnie is great at remembering everything about football. Sadly, he’s not so great at playing it…But that doesn’t stop Arnie from taking part when his team are in the final – as keeper of the match statistics. But, when the striker goes down injured Arnie gets his turn on the pitch. Can he make his mark there too?
Stat Man by Alan Durant
Meet Arnie - the original football anorak! There isn't a bit of football trivia he doesn't know. But can he brush up enough on his skills on the pitch to help out his local side? Arnie Keen loves stats - statistics, facts and figures. But best of all he likes football stats, and that is why people call him Stat Man. If you could win football games by knowing football facts, Arnie's team would always win. Unfortunately, you win by being good at football, which Arnie is not. And when the star player is suddenly injured, Arnie must take his place - will he be able to help his team win the Cup Final? A charming story filled with loads of facts about football! Also suitable for reluctant, struggling and dyslexic readers.
