'Trying to get enough kids to form a decent football team isn’t easy! It’s not just the playing time involved on the weekends; it’s the training sessions after school and at night too. But when the Wildcats reluctantly take on Peta ‘Gazza” Gascoigne to make up the numbers, they quickly discover that she’s the best player they’ve got. Not only that, she’s got an attractive and apparently unattached—or loosely attached—mum. And Splinters is looking for a new partner for his dad. Everything looks set on and off the field, but Gazza and her mum have been deported back to England for overstaying their visa and suddenly disappeared without a trace. Nothing for it but to fly to England, track them down and persuade them to come back. But where are the Wildcats going to get the money? Nuke gets the bright idea that they can borrow his father’s credit card and book their flights on the internet. And that’s where the real trouble begins!' (Publication summary)
