Red Hot by David Ross, Bob Cattell

There is glamour, excitement and great satisfaction in being a young star footballer. Thomas Headley's skills have made him a national hero. But magic feet on the pitch don't prevent injuries. And family problems can happen to anyone. As Thomas' younger brother becomes a rising star for England Juniors, Thomas has to confront injury, family disruption and a vicious case of professional jealousy. Even as Thomas fights for the form that will keep him in the side, he finds himself branded a thief. Someone is out to get him...
