Football-crazy teenager Jimmy Grimble is shy and lacks self-confidence. With a gift of ‘magic’ football boots which once belonged to a player from his beloved Manchester City player, Jimmy’s game sees remarkable improvement. THERE’S ONLY ONE JIMMY GRIMBLE is a delightful tale of the triumph of the underdog.
