Describing themselves as the "missed generation", there are a growing number of clubs for women aged 30 and over.

This summer, two women - from Crawley in West Sussex and Canterbury in Kent - decided to follow the Women's World Cup by going to France to hold their own Old Girls World Cup tournament.
