As a child of the 70s and 80s, the choice of pastimes was somewhat limited. No computers or other gadgets to keep us entertained.
Staying at home, a bore. Being outside whatever the weather was our choice. Outside meant cycling and football, mainly football if I’m honest.
We played everyday, jackets and jumpers for goal posts, a tennis ball when no-one had a footie ball.
Football was our life, those were simpler days.

…or schoolbags or water bottles or two stones 🙂
That’s very true too! 😊
Ah the memories!
How could the defending team win when there was only one goal?
Good point, two would be better! But I do remember only playing with one goal…………😊
Love this post and picture
Thank you Gwen! 😊
I remember it so well, especially the goalposts – when it wasn’t my head. Thanks for the memory
