Bourton Rovers Football in the River

The annual Bourton Rovers Football in the River taking place this forthcoming weekend has to be up there with the cheese rolling as a contender for Gloucestershire's wackiest event.

While the team are already looking forward to this year's action, we were delighted to have been contacted by one of our readers today, who spotted the picture published featuring her father playing the beautiful game in the River Windrush more than 70 years ago.
