Brooksie




A gritty and realistic football tale.

Imagine having a Premier league and England striker as your dad! Lee Brooks loves it, until his dad - 'Brooksie' - loses form and goes downhill embarrassingly fast. Lee hates Brooksie for letting him down. And Lee hates having to move to a grotty new home without his dad. With his own on-pitch confidence at an all-time low, he even begins to hate football. But then he meets Dent and his mates and the chance is there for him to play again - with a team of seriously talented players. They've just one problem - no pitch!
