Football author Dan Freedman visits SMMA

7 January 2015

The author of the action packed football series Jamie Johnson, Dan Freedman, visited the Academy early in December.

He gave talks to years 7 and 8, discussing his life as a journalist, his meetings with football stars and reporting on the England World Cup teams, leading to him becoming an author and inspiring his books.

At the end of each talk he answered a variety of questions from students, ranging from ‘What football team do you support?’ to ‘Did your family support you becoming an author?’

The best questions received a prize and a signed copy of Dan’s most recent book, Skills from Brazil.

During lunchtime, Dan was in the library to sign copies of his books. If a pupil would like to read one of Dan’s books, there are multiple copies available to borrow from the Secondary library.
