The novel that started it all!

Aussie midfielder Jarrod Black is a successful player in the English Football League. Whilst the Premier League has eluded him so far, and despite his advancing years, could this be the season when it all finally comes together? Join our man on a journey through the eyes of a footballer and live the highs and lows as his career takes a twist.

I absolutely loved reading “Introducing Jarrod Black” to the point that I could not put it down. I smiled and laughed throughout each chapter and succumbed to tears when I reached the end of the book.” – Roni, midfielder, El Salvador

… a great piece of escapism (I think I even managed to fall in love with Jarrod's wife from the brief descriptions!)” – Mark, defender, Carlingford Redbacks

A must-read for any football fan. I found myself invested not only in Jarrod’s football career but also in his family life. Looking forward to the next book.” – Chris, fullback, Macarthur Rams
