Coach Karen delivers her half-time team talk to the under-13s Hopperton Hoops. It's life, love and occasionally football. By Harry Venning.

Coach Karen is the new coach of an under-13 girls football team called the Hopperton Hoops. They're not the most successful team in the league, in fact they've never won a game. And under Karen, this record is unlikely to change.

A brand new comedy series by Harry Venning (Clare in the Community) about how a young woman with no life experience is desperate to share it with people even younger than herself.

Starring Karen Fishwick (RSC Juliet, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour) as Coach Karen.

Episode 1: Karen shares her secret past with her avid young audience.
