Acclaimed author Eve Ainsworth tackles the increasing expense of football for working-class kids in this touching story of family, community and beating the odds.

Lewis loves football more than anything else in the world, so he's thrilled when his talent is spotted by a local coach.

But there are some big obstacles in his way. His mum doesn't want him to have anything to do with the game because of what happened to his dad on the pitch. And even if Lewis can persuade her to let him give it a go, there's no way they can afford the kit.

Can Lewis beat the odds to have a chance of following his dream?
