The Story

Angel is playing football, but suddenly Mummy appears and accuses other players of being rough to her Baby. Mummy decides football is far too dangerous and takes Angel home to play with his trains. Angel insists he wants to be playing football, and Mummy decides that maybe she should let it happen.

Next Day Mummy has knitted Angel a wooly cover so that he can play football without getting hurt. She also replaces the hard football with a woolen ball! So the game begins, and as the rival team try to play they grab hold of a thread on Angel's wooly clothes. They end up getting tied together, and Angel's team wins!
