About the Book

A young boy’s relationship with his struggling dad is strained when he is forced to choose between playing football and quality time in this sensitively told story from award-winning writer Tony Bradman.

Daniel had a hard time when his parents split up and his dad started working abroad. He had to move and start at a new school, but things changed for the better when he started playing football for the Haybrook Rockets. This season the team are in with a chance of winning the Championship, but just as things are looking up for Daniel his dad comes back and the only time he can meet up is a Saturday morning – when Daniel plays football. He doesn’t want to let his dad or his team down, so what is Daniel going to do?

Critical Praise

"A story that will be full of very real dilemmas for many children who have a parent living away from them and it’s good to read a story in which the consequences are presented so sympathetically whilst at the same time illustrating that there aren’t simple answers." – The Letterpress Project
