Product Description
'How do you play every game?' yelled Mick. 'Like the All-Ireland Final!' cheered the whole dressing room. Danny Wilde wants one thing more than anything else in the world and that's to get his GAA team, Littlestown Crokes, to the top of the League. With the help of his dad, their coach, Mick, he knows they can win. Things go wrong, when Danny stays with his horrible uncle and aunt, who know nothing about GAA, can the Crokes can make it after all? Danny comes up with a brilliant plan, but needs a whole lot of help to make it work! This is the first title in a fantastic 'New Sports Fiction' series.
