OM Tony Jones represents Wales in first O’ 65 International Football match


Football O65 webTwo Monmouth boys who first played football together in 1958 while pupils at Priory Street Boys school, were in what is believed to be the first over 65 international football match in the world, when Wales played England in Newport.

Tony Jones OM 60-67 is 67 as Fred Beach will be soon, none of the players thought they would be playing football at this age, but the jokes and larking around in the changing room is just as it was 50 years ago, nothing has changed.

Sadly Wales lost 1 – 0, a headed goal that although Fred got a hand to he could not stop – perhaps next year.
