Player Profile:

Name: Simon 'SPECKY' Magee
Age: 13
Code: Australian Rules Football
Team: Booyong High Lions, Under 14's
Position played: Star forward. Known for his SPEC-tacular marking ability and for kicking plenty of goals.
What to expect this season: Specky comes face to face with a tough, talented player by the name of Derek 'Screamer' Johnson. He was responsible for having Specky sent off during a game last season. The two boys become bitter rivals and when a popular TV show runs a nationwide football contest, Specky is relieved when everyone except Screamer decides to enter. But why is Screamer such a bully on the field? And why is he sucking up to Specky's team-mates?
Guaranteed highlights: Incredible footy action by Specky, a surprise trip and the introduction of some terrific new friends.
Question on everyone's lips: A true champion in the making, but is Specky good enough to win the Great Footy Contest?

By the bestselling authors of Specky Magee.
