The Big Goal by Rob Childs


The Big Goal by Rob Childs

Andrew Weston is overjoyed when he wins a SPOT THE BALL competition and gets the chance to form a five-a-side football team and take part in a special weekend tournament. Naming his team the Vikings, Andrew is determined to play well - especially since talent scouts from his favourite club, United, will be watching the matches. But the opposition is tough. Especially Dean's Demons, who play their football hard with bruising tackles and unfair fouls. Now Andrew and his team don't only want to win the Cup - they want to beat the Demons and show them how football should REALLY be played!
