    • Synopsis
    • Chris Rose is a young professional footballer, from Essex, who finally gets the opportunity to
      play for his favourite team, a team he has been a fan of since childhood.
      Signing with them takes Chris's career from the championship to the premiership league however it
      isn't a move that goes smoothly and, in frustration, Chris gets involved with a Russian organised
      crime syndicate who have their sights on using young players to fix matches.
      With the help of his childhood mate, Adam Choppra , Chris goes on a life changing journey making
      many new friends and enemies in both worlds, including his love interest Ashley Queen.
      When Chris scores the goal of his career, he discovers his professional life and his health are now
      in danger. Chris uses his knowledge of football and team strategy to pit the Russians against the
      Algerian underworld and a plan is set in motion to repay the Russian Mafia everything they are
      owed. However the clock is ticking. Can Chris achieve his goals, keep that side of his life secret
      and make a success of his golden opportunity as a pro footballer?
      "In the name of the game" is a story full of action & drama, both on and off the pitch.
