Frances Fairweather: Demon Striker, Paperback / softback Book

Frances Fairweather: Demon Striker Paperback / softback

Part of the FF Childrens Classics series


Frances is, quite simply, obsessed with football - not just as a supporter but as a player.

Only trouble is, she's a girl and girls' teams don't get any decent fixtures.

But when a big one does come up - against a boys' team - she is barred from practising until the match.

She has to play somehow and so she does an extraordinary thing: she disguises herself as a boy and joins The Tigers.

So far so good, but what will happen on the big day when she finds herself having to play for both sides . . . ? Funny, clever and surprisingly credible, this is a book for all young football fans of 9 and upwards.
