Football High Young Gun by Patrick Loughlin
Published by Random House Australia
It is in his blood to be a prodigious footballer. Nick’s motto is “Keep calm and play football”. His father, whom he has never met, is a prominent player for the English Premier League Arsenal team.
Suddenly Nick finds himself with a scholarship to a brand new school called National School of Football.
On his first day at the new school, while hoping to stay incognito, Nick finds himself the centre of attention. Within the first hour, because of his head teacher, everyone knows who he is and now they expect Nick to be as skilful a player as his dad.
Will Nick follow in his father’s footsteps and prove he can play exceptional football like his dad? Can Nick be able to keep his grades up, holding onto his scholarship and still play impressive football? Will the distraction of girls playing in the teams hold him back? Will Nick be able to play well enough to be selected as a member of the first NSF Rep Squad?
Any young person who has ever dreamed of wanting to be exceptional, should read this thought-provoking young adult novel.
