The Big Game

The Big Game

Summary

It's September, and Andrew Weston can hardly wait to get back to school. For this year he is to play in the school football team, and Andrew is sure that his skills in defence will help Danebridge win every match.

But Andrew and his younger brother Chris - a promising goalkeeper - are in action even sooner when they take part in an annual six-a-side football tournament. When a young winger for the Selworth team gives Andrew a few bad moments, Andrew suspects that his debut match for the school team won't be easy at all. For their first opponents are to be...Selworth!
