Synopsis

Big Deal by David Ross, Bob Cattell

Thomas Headley, new idol of the Sherwood Strikers fans, thinks he can handle the limelight, and is getting used to the attention, the offers, the photo-calls. But there's another side to being a football star, as Thomas soon discovers. The pressure mounts as media mogul Redman Forster attempts to enlist Thomas' help to oust the club's management. As a potential buy-out looms, loyalties within the team are sorely tested and Thomas begins to realize that sometimes you need better footwork off the pitch than you do on it...
