We’re all missing football – it’s been over a month since a game was last played, but one team from our Chippenham league took it one stage further and were missing the leagues so much, they built their own pitch!

Jack Hughes from the team Out On Bale, in the Stanley Park Sports Ground, takes up the story: “We were missing Monday nights,” he said. “So we built our own home ground.”

The team are based in the Wiltshire countryside, and they got their football fix by creating their own pitch, with Jack smiling as he reasoned: “What else is there to do on a farm?!”

Football will, of course, return – once Covid-19 is tackled – and we look forward to seeing our leagues resume, and millions of you across the world playing again, but if you have come up with anything novel to replace that Leisure Leagues shaped hole in your life then we’d love to hear about it on our Social Media.

We are always glad to interact with you all on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, where we have been posting some brilliant content each day to help you get through lockdown.

The good news for Out On Bale is that Chippenham’s best 6 a side league will resume – and if you want to join it, then click here:  https://www.leisureleagues.net/league/stanley-park-sports-ground/corsham-monday
