The plan backfires as Rebecca and the whole playing squad begin and start to like him as he does really nice things for the staff and players like bringing biscuits to the boss every morning in a side plot to the whole story as she must work out where he gets these biscuits from the truth is Ted makes them every night.
The club is full of memorable charters such as Higgins (Jeremy Swift) who is Rebecca’s PA, Coach Beard (Brendan Hunt) who is quite coach but when he speaks you know you’re going to laugh, Marketing manager and former club captain Roy Kent’s girlfriend Keeley Jones (Juno Temple) who helps Rebecca with her love life and gets the new sponsor on board when the old one is doing something very bad, washed up champions league winner and club captain Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) who can be heard swearing at any chance he gets.
