Rovers is an original take on the goings on in the clubhouse of a lower league football.Established in 1884, Redbridge Rovers FC are one of oldest clubs in the English club system. Attendance figures average around 27. The team are currently lying second from bottom in their league and their ground is two miles down a dirt track, next to the local rubbish tip.Running the place is matriarchal, hardworking and loose lipped Doreen. Her meat raffles are legendary and have kept punters coming through her doors all those years.Other characters include obsessive fan Pete Mott, who likes nothing more than talking stats over the scratchings with his best mate Tel - only Tel has recently thrown Pete for a loop by coming out as gay and bringing his new boyfriend Mel to the club.Then there's Pete's young lodger Tom, who has got eyes for new barmaid Sam, bossy pensioner Francis and a whole host of other loveable eccentrics.
The club's matriarch Doreen is showing the new barmaid the ropes while gossiping about the club captain and raffling off a meat platter of questionable quality, while die-hard fan Pete gets locked in the club's toilet cubicle with little hope of escape.
Pete attempts to break the world record for eating fish fingers. Doreen gets a little flustered when Redbridge Rovers legend Roger Small makes an appearance.
It's exciting times at the club as the gang watch England draw nil-nil with Macedonia. Doreen's friend Gillian loses her blue cat and Tom writes a poem.
Pete's son Stanley experiences his first ever game and there's a surprise in store for him. Mel cooks Tel a summer roast and Doreen has a twitchy eye.
It's Doreen's 25th anniversary at the club, but no one seems that bothered. Pete reveals to Tel that he is worried he is losing him to Mel.
