T.J. and the Penalty Paperback
by Theo Walcott
Part of the T.J. (Theo Walcott) series
TJ's friend Jamie is the heart and soul of the Parkview football team, but although he's a great tackler his passes are dangerously random - and he can't resist the stodgy food that his mum and the school cook love to tempt him with.
Jamie becomes so unfit that Mr Wood drops him from the team, so his friends and their parents organize a World Food and Football day to try and change his eating habits - and to impress the Inspectors who seem to think Parkview is not a very good school.
Jamie works really hard to get fit, and finally regains his place in the team, but only when he accepts his true vocation as a goalie.
