Just a Football Zorbing event organised by Marlborough Youth Football Club (MYFC) as part of the Under 13 age group’s end of season get together at the Salisbury Road Recreation Ground.
Local residents could easily be excused any worries than the Martians had landed. MYFC u13 age group held their end of season get together and trophy presentations on Friday 9 June with glorious sunshine accompanying the occasion.
Mums, dads, grans and granddads came along to support the coaches, who had organised a Football Zorbing event, in which players are encased in plastic bubbles, whilst frantically chasing a ball around a football pitch.
A great deal of laughter was had, and when some of the smaller players were bounced upside down, it looked incredibly funny seeing two legs pointing and wiggling out the top of the bubble , waiting for one of the coaches to put them back on their feet again.
The evening finished off with a coaches v. boys match which, the boys inevitably won!!
