A blast from the past this week with a photograph of a village football team taken in the early part of the last century.

The picture was sent in by Mr Selby who says it was taken pre-1930s but looking at the kits, hairstyles and moustaches it could be considerably closer to the turn of the century.

The team pictured is Colsterworth FC and if we were to tell you one of the players had only one arm you might struggle to figure out which.

Well, it is Mr Selby’s grandfather, Mr Robinson, who was a news vendor in his day and is pictured in the middle of the back row, carefully concealing his left arm.
