John Hay

This film follows the confusion of adolescent life. The difference with this is that it gives a magical spin as the young hero, Jimmy Grimble (Lewis McKenzie) tries to fathom out all the complexities of school and family life.

Though he is hopeless at the game, Jimmy's ultimate dream is to be a professional footballer so he can find a girlfriend, stop getting bullied and even get an apprenticeship with his favourite team - none other than Manchester City.

But one day he is chosen for the school team - coached by Eric Wirrel (Robert Carlyle) - and scores a magnificent goal, gaining the confidence he needed to brighten his life and which touches and brightens the lives of all around him, including his mum.
