Re: Pickup Football

Hi Brian,

Welcome to the forum. I used to live in Aroni and I can tell you that there used to be football 'matches' in the village school yard more or less every afternoon when the village children & teenagers got together for a kick around :) . Apart from that, sorry I have no info!
