Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 167: Pitch at dw100.

Summary: Is the Doctor any good at football? He’s about to find out.

Sunday football game, pub league, and Craig’s team is short a player, so as his new flat mate, it seems only right that the Doctor should step in.

Amy approves, she says football’s good; it’s normal. Normal is the key, normal is what will help him blend in and avoid suspicion while he figures out what’s going on upstairs, so off he goes to play football. He has no idea what he’s doing.

Still, running down the pitch, dodging other players while dribbling the ball, is great fun, and when he scores there’s cheering! Oh yes, he loves this game!
