Can the new recruits kick it with the best young talent in the country?

Can the new recruits kick it with the best young talent in the country?

Twelve-year-old Nick dreams about football – and his dreams are big: state squad, Joeys, A-League, Socceroos . . . and that’s just for starters! So when Nick wins a scholarship to the prestigious National School of Football, his dreams look set to come true. What Nick doesn’t realise is that he’s just another young gun in a place brimming with skilled footballers. Enter Bazzo, Lexi, Grace, Kristy and Kane. With schoolmates like these, Nick figures his time at the NSF will be unforgettable. And when word gets out that Nick’s dad is none other than former Socceroo and Arsenal star Shane Young, Nick’s prediction comes true in the worst possible way. All eyes are on him.

Does Nick have what it takes to make it at Football High or will reality hit like a well-struck football to the back of the net?

Reviews

Football High is full of well-paced action. The characters are engaging and the conversational style makes this series enjoyable and full of fun. I expect it will be a big hit with Upper Primary students - both boys and girls.
