While visiting a POW camp near Manchester, Margaret's father John, a tradesman and manager of non-league side St. Helens, is impressed by Bert's skill as a goalkeeper and succeeds in getting Bert out of the camp to play for his local team. Despite hostility towards the German POWs, love blossoms between Bert and Margaret.
Bert's prowess in goal is noticed by Manchester City Football Club which signs him up as a player but he then has further challenges to face.
