  • Short Summary

    Fancy dress football from the muddy shores of Southend on Sea.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Southend-on-Sea. The referee gave it up! He couldn't tell 't'other from which' after few minutes play in Southend's famous football match on the mud!"

    Southend On Sea, Essex.

    Rough and tumble fancy dress / comedy football match played on the mud flats of the estuary in Southend. Crowds watch as the players make a madcap attempt to play football. Lots of miskick and falling over. A dog invades the pitch at one stage and joins in the game. Players get more and more muddy and sillier in their playing style - I am sure it was all for a good cause.
