From the author of Ultimate Football Heroes comes the first book in the new Johnny Ball series, perfect reading for football-mad kids
Johnny Ball LOVES football. He loves reading about it, talking about it, watching it - and he loves playing it too. He's a good player, but not quite good enough to make the Tissbury Primary School team for the super-huge Under-11s County Cup. But never mind, because their clueless coach, Mr Mann, has a special role for Johnny: ASSISTANT MANAGER! With only Grandpa George's old scarf, a 'pocket' notebook and his brilliant football brain, can Johnny lead the Tissbury Primary team all the way to County Cup glory?
This is Book 1 in the Johnny Ball Football Genius Series. See all Johnny Ball Football Genius books here.
