Publisher's Summary

Franktastic Football Manager Aged 12 is the first in a series of sports themed books by B. Briers. Perfect for reader 8+ of all sporting abilities. Available here as an unabridged audio download produced by Simon Wood at Dubmaster Studios.

Barney and Hattie Frank are 12-year-old twins who play football together in the school team. The team are trying to win the County Cup. Hattie is the better player but Barney thinks he can see where the school team is going wrong. So, when a TV talent show is looking for a new manager to help a failing Premiership team to start scoring again, Barneyโ€™s sure he knows the answer. Maybe, to demonstrate his skills, he could train Hattie to be a top goal scorer. Secretly he enters the show. If only he could win, wouldnโ€™t that prove that he knows all about football, even if heโ€™s not the best player.

The second in the series Franktastic Tackling Rugby is available on paperback and Kindle Edition.

What the Critics Say

"Narrator Lucy Scott enlivens this spirited sports story. Twelve-year-old Barney Frank and his twin sister, Hattie, are soccer (here called "football") fans-spectators of professional games and players for their school team. Listeners will enjoy hearing about the team and the family's home, which is shared with Grandpa Barney, Scott's best creation. 

"Young Barney enters a contest without divulging his age to coach a professional football team for a charity event. Hearing the two Barneys join ranks in their hopes to win the contest is thrilling. The televised competition and school matches are realistic and infectious. The family's relationships sound genuine, with the twins competing but uniting when needed. Most rewarding for young listeners is learning that competition is normal and that both winning and losing can be sources of pride." (S.G.B. © AudioFile, Portland, ME โ€”Jan. 2018)

    If I write a review I may spoil the story - Loved getting to know Barney, his grandad and their creative schemes
