J.C. United are a dream team. Even their mascot, Shoot the dog, can do headers and
kicks. But will they be able to beat the ferocious Ricky’s Rockets?
In the five-aside tournament Jamie Cocker’s team – J.C.United – are playing in blue
and white. Things are looking good in the first half and they’re beating Ricky’s
Rockets three nil. But then things fall apart - Maxine Cole lets in a goal, William
Storer’s boot flies off and Darren Paul goes off injured. The worst thing is, Jamie’s
team hasn’t got a substitute…or has it?
