Dan Rowland leads The Castle to win Chiddingstone Real Football 1-0

5 months ago By Alan Erskine

Edenbridge senior player captained The Castle for his second year and gained revenge over The Rock

The conditions can at best be described as miserable, wet and cold, but perfect for real football if you want a slow game with a soft landing. The game kicked off at 2.30pm with the ball thrown into a field of 150+ players of all ages, shapes and sizes. The ball remained in the field for about one hour with repeated rucks and mauls until Castle took it across the fence into the woods and headed for The Rock. When the ball arrived Rock players put down their pints and gathered themselves to defend their barrel. After a couple of breakouts the tenacity of the Crusaders proved too much and the winning score at 4.35pm allowed a welcome stop for refreshment and some fantastic chilli to warm the cockles. Just as the celebrations were about to set in it was announced that there would be a further game kicking off at 5. Castle secured possession and, following Dan’s strategy, wandered into the woods away from Rock enemy until full time was called at 6.

Captain Dan is pictured (second from right) with fellow Bridge players and the ball held by Jack Miller who put the fear into The Rock team jumping into a pond and swimming 5 metres as both sides headed for the start line (grrr).
