A potentially expensive game of football

A potentially expensive game of football

Young people play football on the last remaining bowling green.

When walking on Woodhouse Moor earlier this afternoon, a local resident was most surprised and rather concerned to witness a group of men playing football on the top bowling green. It certainly seemed to be an organised game as one side was wearing tabards and the goal posts were delineated by sets of trainers.

Have this group been given permission to play there? And iff so, by whom? Certainly in wet weather they will damage the surface.

And even if the group has been given permission, which seems unlikely, organised games of football are illegal under the current lockdown rules. Individuals who break the rules are liable for a fine of up to £10,000.
