Description

They call it the 'beautiful game'but behind the scenes, at cash-strapped Sandford Town things are getting downright ugly. The fans hope new manager Bob Evans will save this once great club and he is pinning his hopes for Top Flight survival on teenage sensation Billy Bennett, but some people are prepared to do anything to ensure 'the Townies' go down. Welcome to Sandford Town where soccer really is more important than life and death.
