The recent clarification of the offside rule is equivalent to a rule change. This book explains it. Budding Soccer Stars is written to share a passion for a game played all round the world. The author has cut his teeth in recreational and competitive leagues. He is a team captain and an accredited referee. The teeth are close to the candy. Any player, six to thirteen years old, wanting to catch up with latest developments or wanting to understand the position the coach has put her/him in, will find something here. There is more too, including a peek at international competition for future stars; but there will be little for a player that does not have fun, like we have had in playing and in writing this book for you.
