A tale of greed and scandal, farce and tragedy. Sir Alfred Bullock, industrialist and owner of Throttle Cricket Club land, is laid up. His devious son Roland devises an unpleasant get-rich-quick scheme. He gives an ultimatum to the cricket club to "win a trophy by the end of the season ~ or we take back the whole ground you play on." The club, in a desperate attempt to win games, enlists the help of a professional, who unfortunately has a bigger reputation off the field than on. Roland, plus an unscrupulous estate agent and two dodgy builders, hatch malicious plans to ensure the team loses games. Meanwhile, two neighbours, whose houses are devalued by their proximity to the ground, latch on to Roland's scheme, and devise their own way to 'fix' the club's failure.
