Playing the Field

Show Summary

A five year journey with quite probably the gutsiest women's football team every to grace the small screen. The series follows them on and off the field, as they show you that football is more than just a matter of life and death.

The series starts with a big day for the Castlefield Blues - player Theresa Mullen is getting married. All the team, supporters, friends and family turn out for the wedding. Even Mum, who hasn't left the house in years. Everyone's there - everyone, that is, except the Groom. Emotions run high, and this is only the beginning for a team of players who spend the next five years fighting - to stay in the league, to stay together, and to win the Cup Final. Chasing sponsorship and the dream of winning the Championship, the Blues stick together as marriage breaks up, romances begin and family loyalaties crumble.
