Before The Playstation.......

Before we all had computer consoles, ipods and mobile phones what did children play?

Summertime, and schools out for seven glorious long weeks. What can we do? em football, football and em football. Here's a nostalgic look back at some of the long forgotten games we used to play, see if you remember a few.

There was the old favourite 20 a side game with everyone wearing different coloured tops so it was impossible for anyone to pick out a team-mate with a pass, with the park having jumpers for goalposts and no boundaries which meant the pitch could be a quarter of a mile wide!

Another was played with just two of us, we called it Curby, you would find a road preferably a quiet one with high curbs. You throw the ball to try and make it bounce back to you off the curb, this scores a point then you would move into the middle of the road and try from there for two points.

Wembley or Wembley doubles, it's played in one set of goalposts with one designated goal keeper, with as many outfield players as you wish. It was played in rounds basically if you scored then you were through to the next round with the person not scoring being knocked out at the end of each round.

There is so many more but thats my top three, ok I'm off outside for a game of keepie uppies
