    We had some technical issues while recording this episode (on all five attempts!) and the audio quality suffered a bit as a result. Sorry about that! We’re working to resolve the problem for future episodes.

    Since we recorded the episode, England’s women’s national team made headlines when they thrashed Montenegro 10-0 in a Women’s World Cup qualifier.

    The Oldest Footballer in England

    Meet Dickie Borthwick. He’s approaching 79, and still plays football.

    Beyond the immediate desire to want to kick around with him, this short film by Alex Knowles & James Callum focuses on a man who has been fortunate enough to share his whole life with the game. They made the film with the intent to dispel the myth that ‘old people are past it’ and instead introduce us to inspirational people with invaluable insight, exceptional passion, a never-ending supply of wonderful stories and a thirst for life that refuses to fade.

    Mr. Borthwick notes that "football brings a lot of friends into your life… I’m there with young people all the time, playing football! At my age! What more can I ask for?" Cheers, Dickie, for reminding us to appreciate what we all have at our feet.
