12/02/13 SHROVETIDE MARK - Ashbourne Shrovetide Tuesday Play

Comments (0)

The Ashbourne News Telegraph has been busy knitting together all of our footage from this year's Shrovetide game.

The final result is a 15-minute film showing both goals, both turners-up, both goal scorers returning to the town hall and even the Wednesday luncheon.

There are also snippets of Down'ard runner Gareth Webster and Up'ard runner Simon Fisher preparing for the game as well as footage of the town's shops barricading their windows ready for the two days of play.

See John Tomkinson turn up the Tuesday leather and Nigel Brown turn up the ball on Ash Wednesday.

Witness David Spencer tap the Sturston mill wheel three times for the Up'ards on Tuesday and James Carter equalise for the Down'ards at Clifton on wednesday.

From the mass crowds on Shrove Tuesday through to the snowy conditions on the Wednesday - everything is covered.
