When Frankie wins a tatty old football from the local fair, he and his friends can't resist one quick kick-around at the park on their way home. Before they know it, Frankie, Charlie, Louise and dog Max find themselves whisked away to strange and unusual places where they must face off with ancient Romans, angry pirates, and many more in the fantasy league. If they win, Frankie's FC get to play another game. If they lose, well...it's the long walk off a short plank for them all.
