Details

I'm one half of Matt and Tom Oldfield, the brothers behind the Ultimate Football Heroes and Classic Football Heroes books series for children aged 7-12. Our fun, action-packed biographies tell the exciting life stories of the world's greatest footballers including Gareth Bale, Luis Suarez and Wayne Rooney.

I also work with schools, charities and organisations (The National Literacy Trust, The National Football Museum) to deliver literacy workshops aimed at football fans and reluctant readers. My workshops aim to combine key aspects of writing (dialogue, character, emotion, setting) with key aspects of football and life (teamwork, bouncing back, achieving dreams).

You can follow me on Twitter (@footieheroesbks), or email me at oldfield.matt@gmail.com. And don't forget to check out our website -  heroesfootball.com 

Books

There are currently 18 published titles across the two series but there will be plenty more coming out ahead of the 2018 World Cup!
