The Ballygandon football team triumphs against a team from Seamus’s town, in spite of his attempts at revenge and sabotage…

A football star is coming to Ballygandon! Mickey Marscapone, a famous player for an English team, is recovering from an accident and wants a spell of rest, away from the limelight. His father is Italian, his mother Irish, and his grandmother came originally from Ballygandon.

He rents a room in his grandmother’s old house, now the home and shop of Molly’s parents. Brendan, Molly and Dessy are very excited – maybe Mickey will coach them, and even help with their cherished plan of forming a Ballygandon team.

Mickey becomes a friend, and tells them how his grandmother always loved the house and talked about it as her "treasure". By chance, Locky and a historian friend at Horseshoe House where he lives have been researching Old Ballygandon, and think there might be real treasure hidden in the area of the house. Strange problems start happening around Molly’s house – unexplained leaks, and a near-fire.

Mickey wonders if it some weird bad-luck omen, but the Gang suspect Seamus and eventually catch him in an act of skullduggery.
