ALL GOALIES ARE CRAZY - but some goalies are more crazy than others! After a series of match-losing blunders, can Sanjay prove himself the number one goalie?

Reviews

Bang in the 50-yard box is Soccer Mad from Rob Childs, the racily-written tale of how one boy takes his Sunday team of rag-tag juveniles to face the champions in the local league * TES * An excellent story detailed enough to please the most devoted fanatic * Independent on Sunday on Soccer Mad * Rob Childs's love for football is obvious and sincere. I'm so glad he writes and gives me yet more material to offer my book-hating boys. There's no loss of 'street-cred
when you

're seen reading this by your mates! * Books for Keeps *'
