Synopsis

Zombie The Boy Who Got Sick of Warming the Bench by Pete Kalu

After a game near a nuclear power plant, that night in bed Leonard is visited by zombies . . The ghostly players from the winning 1966 England World Cup team tell him that if he follows their instructions, not only will he get off the bench - but Ducie High XI will start to take control. Leonard obeys, and the team's prospects surge. But what is the price of the zombies' involvement? How high will that price be - and what pound of living flesh will they demand?
