Don your trunks
THE normally peaceful Windrush River – the eponymous water in Bourton on the Water – becomes the site for a ferocious game of football next week.
Bourton's annual Football in the River match gets under way as two local teams compete for 30 minutes, knee-deep in the river.
This year, the teams are put together from Bourton Rovers Football Club, and promise to deliver the usual delightfully entertaining spectacle regulars have come to expect.
Those planning to sit near the banks are well advised to pack some waterproofs, as anything goes once those two teams enter the water.
