Summary:

A contemporary story about heroes, football and how a teenage youth eventually comes to reject the image of a modern day role model in favour of the reality of one from an earlier time. Through the story threads a theme which haunts and threatens the modern game of soccer. Racism and hooliganism rip at the heart of Jamie's family infiltrating and disrupting not only daily life but society as a whole.
At the centre of the story is the life, and love story of probably the games greatest ever ambassador. (Sir) Stanley Mathews. The man of whom Pele said "He taught us how to play". The man who truly embodied the spirit of the game passes it on to a new generation.
Endorsed by Desmond Tutu and the United Nations Department for Sport and Peace.
