Warren United follows the fortunes of Warren Kingsley, an overweight kitchen salesman and fervent football fan, as he stumbles through life trying to juggle his two passions – football and family.
Brainsford’s arch rivals, Rovers, have just been taken over by billionaire Middle Eastern owners who plan to buy the whole Brazil team and, if it isn’t available, the Argentina one. Warren is in despair. He hates the Rovers’ new owners. In fact, Warren hates all billionaire owners, unless they buy Brainsford. All he wants is for the Meringues to buy some new players and win something - anything. Anyone can understand that, right? Wrong. Warren soon finds himself in trouble with the police.
July, an opposition own goal scored six minutes into stoppage time in the last game of the season, keeps Brainsford up! Warren is over the moon until he realises that the first pre-season friendly won’t be for six whole weeks. Dillip (Nitin Ganatra) tries to help by taking Warren (Darren Boyd) to the cricket. It doesn’t work. Reggie (Tony Law) tries to divert him but Warren is unswayed. Finally, Ingrid (Eleanor Lawrence) organises some drastic help. Will Warren finally get a result?
