Documentary about Newport goalkeeper Michael Morris, who claims the world record for most penalties saved in a football match. During the Gwent premier Football League game between Newport YMCA and Spencer, which took place on Friday, 29th September 1973, Spencer were awarded three penalties, two of which had to be re-taken,  but with these five attempts, Spencer still did not score. Michael Morris,  the Newport YMCA goalkeeper, saved four of the shots, although he was penalised for having moved on two occasions and the fifth attempt went wide of the post. The game ended in a 3-0 victory to Newport YMCA.
