Comedy series following the trials and tribulations of a football-obsessed dad. Desperate for his 10-year-old son to get a trial for Bolton Wanderers, Terry McConnell's erratic behaviour causes his son to be dropped from Ashburn United's league decider, even though he is joint leading scorer.

Terry moves heaven and earth to persuade the manager to relent and play Malky from the start.
