The Game archiveLancashire. 1913. Match Day! Blackton Rovers is in need of money. Owner, Austin Whitworth, sells his star centre forward - local football hero Jack Metherell - to a rival club on the eve of a crucial match that could see Rovers relegated. Will honest Jack do Austin's bidding when asked to throw the match? Or will he put professional honour above loyalty to his old club? Meanwhile Austin's daughter Elsie, and Jack, are in love - or so they think. But Jack still lives at home, firmly tied to his mother's apron strings... From the halcyon days of professional football where players were working class heroes and people were supposed to know their place. A spirited comedy by the author of the classic Hobson's Choice, that combines broad northern humour with the paspassion, pride, prejudice and principles of two football families.
