Synopsis

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!
