Jimmy Grimble (Lewis McKenzie ) would do anything to become a football pro but a lack of self-confidence on the pitch is standing between him and his childhood dream. His misery is compounded when his mother (Gina McKee) invites her latest moronic boyfriend to move in rather than the man she really wants, Harry (Ray Winstone). However, Jimmy's luck changes when he meets a mysterious old bag lady (Jane Lapotaire) who gives him a pair of magic football boots. And although skeptical at first, it's not long before Jimmy is scoring hat tricks and even managing to help his coach (Robert Carlyle) to rediscover his passion for the game. But just before kick off on the day of the school cup final the boots go missing. Will Jimmy's confidence desert him or will his supporters be singing, "there's only one Jimmy Grimble" in the end?
