Stadium School is more than just a special summer course, it's a really cool school that teaches its students everything about football. With its state-of-the-art facilities, top coaches and location in the grounds of a former football stadium, the school is the place for aspiring footballers. And better still it's a co-ed boarding school, so the kids can live and breathe football from morning to night. Roddy Jones is the star of his school five-a-side team, in which he plays alongside his best friend Bryn. However, Roddy has bigger dreams. So when he is spotted by a scout for Stadium School and invited to a trial he is determined to win a place, whatever it takes. But even if he does get in, will his parents be able to afford the fees and how will Roddy feel about leaving Bryn behind?
