Up For The Cup

Up_For_The_CupCharlie and his dad are utter football fans for their team Seaburn City. So when their star player Julio Poom has his pre-match good luck ritual (featuring alphabet spaghetti) sabotaged just before the cup final, they're determined to put things right. Luckily, a vintage tin of alphabet spaghetti and quick thinking on the part of Charlie save the day.
