Soccer on skates!

As if playing football on concrete, trying to kick one of those vintage heavy leather balls in between two jumpers (makeshift posts) wasn’t hard enough, these kids were doing so on roller skates!

The above picture was taken in 1931 in East London, the area in which Millwall and West Ham United played (the former have since relocated to south-east London).

London has remained a hub of the sport that has become known as Rollersoccer. Indeed, in 2003, the English capital hosted the maiden Rollersoccer World Cup, with the Netherlands beating old rivals Germany in the final.
