Series 1, Episode 5 - Football Match
Alfie reveals a hidden talent when the annual football match between Abbey Grove and the school he attended, Middleton House, approaches. Will the benefit scroungers pull it off, or Middleton's snooty toff boys who clinch the win?
It is the biggest football match of the Abbey Grove school year, as they take on the local public school, Middleton House.
After the PE teacher goes missing, Fraser decides that Alfie is the ideal candidate to coach the Abbey Grove team. There are a couple of problems with this decision - firstly Alfie knows nothing about football and secondly Middleton House happens to be his childhood school, which means being reacquainted with his old games teacher and nemesis Mr Humpage.
Jamie Meek was Jack Whitehall's double in the closing scenes of this episode.
