Soccer at Sandford by Rob Childs


Soccer at Sandford by Rob Childs

Jeff Thompson is delighted to be picked as captain of Sanford Primary School's football team. With an enthusiastic new teacher and a team full of talent - not least that of loner Gary Clarke, with his flashes of goal-scoring brilliance - he is determined to lead Sandford to success. Their goal is the important League Championship- and their main rivals are Tanby, who they must first meet in a vital Cup-tie. From kick-off to the final whistle, through success and disappointment, penalties and corners, to the final nail-biting matches of the season, follow the action and excitement as the young footballers of Sandford Primary School learn how to develop their skills and mould together as a real team - a team who are determined to win by playing the best football possible!
