The Man With The Magic Foot

Out Now!

Chadmouth Town haven’t won anything for 60 years, and Ches doesn’t think he’ll ever see the team he loves win a trophy.

But amazingly, he suddenly finds himself travelling back in time to the 1960s, just days before the biggest occasion in the club’s history – their one and only FA Cup Final appearance.

He’s desperate for a ticket to watch his beloved team win the Cup, but an accident the day before the final threatens to change the course of history. It’s up to Ches to put things right to make sure Chadmouth are still champions.

Can Ches make it to Wembley, and has he just ruined the Crabs’ chances of winning?

I Love Animals!

Danny Mann Super Fan

Danny loves Chadmouth Town Football Club more than anything, but a run of defeats and terrible luck has left them bottom of the table and looking certain to be relegated with time running out.

But then, Danny and his best friend Nelson stumble across a bizarre pre-match ritual that seems to turn their luck around, and his beloved team starts winning again. Is it too little too late though, and can he keep doing everything right before each match, even when he starts finding more and more obstacles in his way and despite the relentless teasing from his classmates? It’s going to come down to the wire.

Does Danny have what it takes to save Chadmouth’s season?
