It’s a must-win match in this week’s episode, which sees Jack, Victor and the rest of the Craiglang gang in sporting spirit as they take part in a walking football tournament.
Jack and Victor head to The Clansman, only to find it is 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 is forced out of the game, it is 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 does not 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 Mrs. 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.
