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.

Notes

Jamie Meek was Jack Whitehall's double in the closing scenes of this episode.
