Tom Oldfield has written several books which feature the world’s most influential footballers in Ultimate Football Heroes and their incredible journey and experience to achieving their individual goals. Just like many children, dreamers, people with the aspiration to becoming a successful footballer, Oldfield brings you along the stories of many football athletes like Ronaldo, Beckham, Messi and more. What’s amazing is that these books are a great encouragement for young children, compiling a long list of biographies which may show the hardships and obstacles these footballers faced along their way, which is often overlooked or missed behind the fame.
The books are written in a way that is easily digestible and the younger audience can learn about the players with little difficulty. In just the UK, there have been more 420,000 copies of the series sold to date. In addition to the wonderful books the authors have produced, they also work with schools and organisations like The National Literacy trust as well as The National Football Museum to provide workshops in relation to football. The stories told have specific details about the players and their individual journey, supported by facts you may have never learnt of, and each book may be an excellent reference book to guide children’s football path or a daily inspiration, some players had a slow and humble start to their career and some had doubts or rejected due to their height, size or initial skills but achieved success through effort and hard work, which can truly be an inspiration and life-lesson for kids who may also face the same challenges.
