Can anyone recommend any good tutorials for creating light streaks in after effects?

I'm trying to create a light streak that follows a football, as it's kicked into a goal. The aim is then to have the light explode across the screen to reveal text.

I have no idea how to go about any of this really, but if I could work out how to create some good looking light streaks, that would be a start.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm working with CS6 and have trapcode particular.

Any advise would be really appreciated.
Thanks so much!

Andrew Kramer has a few light streak tutorials at Videocopilot. Don't be afraid to look at the older ones: they'll still work.

Thanks Dave, really appreciate your response. I've found the light streaks tutorial. It seems straight forward enough, but just struggling to get it to work with the footage. I'll keep trying. Thank you again!
