Overview

TJ is a new boy at Parkview School and he's never played in a proper football match before, but he soon makes friends with a bunch of football-mad kids.The trouble is, none of the teachers at Parkview are interested in football and the kids have nowhere to play - until Mr Wood arrives. With Mr Wood's help - and with the assistance of Mr Wood's old friend, Marshall Jones, a Premier League footballer - the kids and their parents mend their pitch, begin to put together a brilliant football team, and start to turn the school into a place to be proud of.

Author

Theo Walcott was born on 16 March 1989 and grew up near Newbury. After joining the youth scheme at Southampton, he became the Saints' youngest ever player, before joining Arsenal in January 2006. Following his surprise selection in Sven-Goran Eriksson's World Cup squad, Theo set another record in making his England debut at the age of just 17 years and 75 days, and was named the BBC's Young Sports Personality of the Year in 2006. He is now a star player for both Arsenal and England and in September 2008 became the youngest player to score a hat-trick for England. He lives in Hertfordshire with his family and three pet dogs.
