Synopsis

Soccer Squad Missing! by Bali Rai

Dal, Chris, Abs and Jason have made the squad for the local youth club under-lls football team. And after their first match (not as successful as they'd have liked), they are determined to prove that they've got what it takes to be winners. The Rushton Reds have lost their first two matches. Missed chances, missed goals - even missed penalties! Their coaches say they need to play more as a team - and they have an idea for a great team-building day. But will it help the Reds hit the back of the net?
