Football in the River, Bourton-on-the-Water 2019
Bank Holiday Monday sees the return of Bourton-on-the-Water’s Football in the River.
This event sees two teams of six from Bourton Rovers Football Club play a 30 minute football match in the usually calm waters of the River Windrush. Goalposts are set up in the river and players attempt to score as many goals as possible, whilst getting all spectators as wet as possible in the process. This event has been taking place for over 100 years and attracts hundreds of spectators.
