The Big Clash




Footballer Chris Weston has to cope not only with fighting to keep his team in the Cup, but also with dealing with the return of his absentee father

I've heard you're a good keeper. How about producing one for me, eh?'
Chris Weston, goalie and team captain of Danebridge school football team, can hardly believe it when his team - fighting relegation - make it to the semi-finals of the Cup! But how can he concentrate on his football when his absentee father makes an appearance. For Dad can't keep his mouth shut, shouting out his comments from the touchline and completely putting Chris off his game. Can Chris keep his head and focus on his football? And can Danebridge make it to the Final?
