About #NetProfits: Soccer Edition

Joe’s grandad has died.

His gran’s silent in her grief.

His mum’s away.

His dad has a new girlfriend.

All that’s left is football; on the pitch and online.

But Grandad was his fantasy football partner, and football’s banned at school because of vandalism.

Joe knows it’s time to act.

But what can he do?

How can his team finally beat their closest rivals in the schools’ league, when they’re not even allowed on the pitch to play?

As Joe works his way through his troubles – and encounters worse ones on the way – he discovers the answers lie closer to home than he thought.
