Description

Jackson is good at football… really good at football. And when a scout from United spots him in the park, it seems like he might just have the chance to make it out of his high-rise tower block and into the premier league. But will the ex-boyfriend of the girl of his dreams, his granddad’s illness or the unexpected reappearance of his father get in the way of making it as a professional footballer?

This 4-book Football Trials collection is part of the Bloomsbury High Low range, which encourages and supports reading practice by providing gripping, age-appropriate stories for struggling and reluctant readers, those with dyslexia, or those with English as an additional language. Printed on tinted paper and with a dyslexia friendly font and illustrations, The Football Trials is aimed at readers aged 12+ and has a manageable length (80 pages) and reading age (9+). Produced in association with reading experts at Catch Up, a charity which aims to address underachievement caused by literacy and numeracy difficulties.

"Well written and realistic, this is an excellent read. The interest level is high to offer a really satisfying read appropriate to teen readers, whilst reading is carefully graded to suit struggling readers and build their confidence." - Parents in Touch

"Designed to appeal to reluctant or dyslexic readers, the action is non-stop, short sentences ensuring it's totally accessible, but the story is still thoroughly satisfying and will leave readers wanting to hear more about Jackson." - Andrea Reece, Lovereading4Kids
