When they see a mystery kid with great skills, they want him to join the team.

Robbie’s Rovers

Plot

There were two football teams in the town of Bayford — the snooty Apollo and the Rovers. Live-wire Roberta Page, whose three brothers played for the Rovers, was hoping that the Rovers would win the Brent Cup. She felt sure this would cheer up their injured organiser and trainer, John ‘Fallon, who was in hospital.
