Series 8, Episode 3 - Balls Up

It's a must-win match which sees Jack, Victor and the rest of the Craiglang gang in sporting spirit as they take part in a walking football tournament.

Further details

Jack and Victor head to The Clansman, only to find it's Isa behind the bar. Turns out, Boabby has taken up walking football once a week and he's getting match-fit for a very important tournament at the weekend.

However, when Boabby's football career is unexpectedly cut short and he's forced out of the game, it's up to Jack and Victor to pull a team together and win a much-needed new pitch for their local community.

As a warm up, they play a 'friendly' against the doddery old Claymore pub team but it doesn't quite go to plan. Under the guidance of firm new manager, Isa, the Craiglang team sets about a rigorous Rocky-inspired training regime, employing some interesting new sporting tactics.

Meanwhile, Methadone Mick puts himself forward for a key role at the tournament much to the horror of Mrs Greer from the walking football association. However, with no other candidates to choose from, the straight-laced Ms Greer has no option but to take a punt on Mick.

With training complete and the oranges quartered, the newly formed Craiglang team prepare for the all-important football tournament, hoping they won't score an own goal.
