Mustangs FC

Matchbox Pictures, 2017

Mustangs FC is a goal kicking comedy drama about girls who are abandoning the sidelines and starting their local football club’s first all female team. Against the odds, they’ll stand united and overcome any challenge the club, the boys or the opposition can throw at them, all while wrestling with what it means to be a girl today.

This is the story of the team’s bid to get to the final of the divisional league and captain Marnie facing an uphill battle. Has she got what it takes to lead this rookie side through it’s first massive season? Time to girl up and see..

Marnie’s best friend Liv is an enthusiastic player who sometimes forgets that being a goalkeeper means she has to actually guard the goal. Reluctant Bella refuses to get off the bench and over-scheduled Anusha is trying to revise nuclear physics during the drinks break. Ruby’s a great striker - maybe a little too great for competitive Marnie to handle - but is she even going to hang around for a season when she’s so desperate to head back to LA? And surely Princess Lara will be constantly on the injured list with a broken nail? Can these girls overcome their differences, support each other better than Serena’s sports bra and work out there’s no “i” in team?

As well as playing great soccer, this girl squad have got to work out how to be a friend. A sister. A daughter. A captain. A good sport. And how all that may be hard or sad or ridiculously crazy or laugh out loud funny. But when you’ve got your team mates behind you, there’s no better feeling than playing like a girl.
