Camping in the abandoned football stadium sounds like a great outing to mark the beginning of the holiday. Lucas, Irfan and Jack are all prepared. Together, they scale the fence and set up camp on the now overgrown pitch. But something is haunting them. Could it be the ghost of the brilliant young footballer who died in mysterious circumstances? Soon the three boys are caught up in more than they had bargained for in an exciting and spooky adventure.
