Boys will be boys

Barry, Martin, Julian, Keith, Ted, John, Simon, Alan and Nick are a group of friends who have been playing football together for the past ten years. They meet religiously every Friday evening at the Brixton Recreation Centre in South London where they play 5 aside indoors.

After 60 minutes of running, shouting and sweating they adjourn to the pub. The boys spend the rest of the night feeding their adrenaline levels with booze and football talk. The players' performance is meticulously recorded in a notebook known as the Matrix, after all, football on a Friday evening is serious business !
