Billy's Boots: Billy Dane wasn't any good at football until he discovered a pair of old football boots. The football boots had once belonged to "Dead Shot Keen, the old centre forward for England." Wearing the boots gave Billy the ability to play football like the old star.

· Bobby of the Blues: Bobby Booth plays for Everpool City, nicknamed "The Blues" because of their colours.

· King of Football:

· Lags Eleven: Willie Smith, known to his friends as "Brilliant Genius", was the greatest super-crook in Britain, having been the master-mind behind numerous bank-raids, jewel-robberies and wage-snatches. Unfortunately for him he'd been caught and was doing a ten-year stretch in Bankhurst Prison, where he decides to start a football team as part of a master plan to escape during the first away match.
