Tom’s whole life is straight out of CrapTowns. Mum died. Dad’s a waster. School is tough.
Tom and Raks are at the bottom of the pecking order - and it just shouldn’t be that way - but then they befriend ‘ASBO boy’, Ryan, and go to a Letchford Town football game with him.
When it kicks off outside the ground with the Castleton fans, Tom and Raks are ready and up for it - it ain’t football - but Tom is hooked and can’t wait for the next home game!
Suddenly everyone at school notices Tom and Raks: they have an identity, they have power — but at what cost?
"...Ten times better than the usual teenage crap. It's about the lifestyle that wannabes like The Streets and Guy Ritchie can only dream about."
