When a young and tiny Grace Gordon goes in goal during a back street football match. nobody expects her to save a penalty against the hammer-footed Sammy Swift. Least of all Reg Quint, talent scout for the local professionals. When Grace intercepts the ball with ease, Quint assumes it was Sammy's save and signs him up. Media hype makes Sammy a big star, but who can save him when he eventually has to go in goal for the cup match? Here we have a brisk and highly enjoyable farce. Each episode of gathering chaos has an appropriately silly tabloid-style headline. Excellent, light entertainment for independent readers.
