Fantastic Football Poems

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Witches cheating to win the cup, a commentator's account of a boy playing football in his street, the sneaky-snaky tactics of the Anaconda Wanderers and a Gran that just wants to play centre forward... these are just some of the imaginative characters and situations collected in Fantastic Football Poems.

There are plenty of funny poems, short ones and longer pieces, so teachers and parents can help kids dip in and out of a selection of fun, engaging verse.

Featuring football-themed poems from a variety of children's poets including Tony Bradman and Brian Moses as well as lesser-known gems, this is a great selection for primary-age children in love with the beautiful game.
