Smart Bierton celebrate Oving Village Cup joy

We turn the clock back more than 60 years to this happy and extremely smart group of footballers. Taken in 1953, the picture shows the players and management team of Bierton celebrating winning the coveted Oving Village Cup.

The cup is believed to be the second oldest cup competition in the world, behind the FA Cup.

Today’s Bierton side, who sport a much brighter kit and more than likely a vast array of colourful boots, aren’t faring too badly either having just beaten local rivals Bedgrove 8-0 in the ADL on Saturday.
