Barnstoneworth United Retro Football ShirtBarnstoneworth United Retro Football Shirt. This (Ripping) yarn tells the tale of the final days of Barnstoneworth United of the Yorkshire Premier League in 1935. Gordon Ottershaw (Michael Palin) spends his whole life surrounded by everything Barnstoneworth, and after every weekly heavy defeat, he comes home and smashes up the front room in disgust.

As the team only has about 4 players (and three pairs of shorts) left, Gordon goes off and rounds up the star team from the early 20’s, to play the final match. Davitt is the star man, and scores the winner with a header. Gordon runs off home, announces the victory, and the whole family smash up the front room
