T.J. and the Hat-trick
TJ is a new boy at Parkview School and he’s never played in a proper football match before, but he soon makes friends with a bunch of football-mad kids. The trouble is, none of the teachers at Parkview are interested in football and the kids have nowhere to play – until Mr Wood arrives…
With Mr Wood’s help – and with the assistance of Mr Wood’s old friend, Marshall Jones, a Premier League footballer - the kids and their parents mend their pitch, begin to put together a brilliant football team, and start to turn the school into a place to be proud of.
T.J. and the Penalty
TJ’s friend Jamie is the heart and soul of the Parkview football team, but although he’s a great tackler his passes are unpredictable – 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.
Will Jamie’s friends be able to persuade him to get fit again?
Will Jamie get his place on the team back?
Will the school inspectors shut Parkview for good…?
T.J. and the Cup Run
TJ and his friends get a terrible shock when their old teacher, Mr Potter, returns from illness to take over from Mr Wood as PE teacher at Parkview School. Worse still, they are about to play in the semi-final of the Cup.
Will Mr Potter's bad tactics lose them the match?
T.J. and the Winning Goal
The Parkview team are off to compete in the Regional Championship tournament, but their striker is in trouble. The team is improving all the time, but Tulsi, once the star, is getting left behind. When she's dropped from both the school team and her Sunday League team, she even talks about giving up football.
Can TJ and the team help Tulsi to win her place back?
