Stamford v Boston Round Robin

This is what walking football is all about. Rather than the ever increasing over competitiveness of the recent 50+ tournaments, this was a throwback to when it all started up 4 years or so ago.

Four teams playing with comradeship in a friendly but competitive spirit. No over aggression and just the odd run (well we all do it at times) and sharing stories over sandwiches and a beer afterwards.

The 60+ lads from Boston brought two teams to play the 60+ Stamford lads today at Borderville.

Glorious weather and some pretty glorious football at times meant an enjoyable day for all.

I will put the scores and table below but on a day like today it really didn't matter who won or lost - to steal an old phrase it was 'how we played the game'.
