Mick and Mitch are at the football training session with Bailey and they help coach Caden get things going. Realising that he’s still feeling glum about his abilities to manage the team, Mick and Mitch invite him to The Queen Vic to give him a pep talk. Thinking they’ve convinced Caden not to give up, they are both shocked when Caden instead insists he’s quitting. It means the two men have an unexpected task on their hands – managing the team!
Max is concerned about Rainie’s recent ill health and he books her in for a doctor’s appointment. When Jack finds out he’s pleased that Max is making an effort to look after his wife at long last.
