The depot only has one star player,young Bob,and Stan injures him in training,so he asks Blakey if he can field a substitute – Olive. Blakey feels that women and football do not mix – until he sees the Basildon Bashers. They are an all-female team and they contrive by fair means and foul to give Stan’s team a good pasting.
