Shrovetide

When I left Ashbourne late afternoon yesterday the score was 0-0 the ball was not gaoled until early evening by the Up’ards (not sure of the scorers name)

Today after watching most of the action mainly in and around the pond, Henmore brook, and recreation grounds I left Ashbourne at 4.30

I tuned in to Ashbourne radio on the way home to herethe "Up'ards have scored! The ball was goaled at Sturston Mill by Chris Keeling after a breakaway and a run through the fields.”

From what I saw of this years play the game is as popular as ever with a large turn out on both days.
Long may it continue.
