The Man With The Magic Foot

Chadmouth Town haven’t won anything for 60 years, and Ches doesn’t think he’ll ever see the team he loves win a trophy.

But amazingly, he suddenly finds himself travelling back in time to the 1960s, just days before the biggest occasion in the club’s history – their one and only FA Cup Final appearance.

He’s desperate for a ticket to watch his beloved team win the Cup, but an accident the day before the final threatens to change the course of history. It’s up to Ches to put things right to make sure Chadmouth are still champions.

Can Ches make it to Wembley, and has he just ruined the Crabs’ chances of winning?

It’s going to come down to the wire.

Does Danny have what it takes to save Chadmouth’s season?
