Truth was, he didn’t know anything about Australia except that it was a long way away, it was sunny, there were kangaroos, his friends weren’t there, and they called football ‘soccer’. What was there to look forward to about that?

Edward ‘Megs’ Morrison is starting at a new school. That’s hard enough, but to do it in a foreign land makes it even more uncomfortable. At least Megs speaks the language… sort of.

Luckily, football is an international password, and football just happens to be something Edward loves. Unfortunately, his school doesn’t have a proper team, because no one is available to coach.

Megs makes an unlikely friend of a quirky old Hungarian school cleaner, but will he ever make friends his own age? Will he ever feel at home on the other side of the planet? And with no school team, how will Megs quench his thirst for competitive football?

Megs and The Vootball Kids is a story about persistence, dedication and overcoming obstacles. It’s about making a difference whatever your background…and it’s about football.
