Fond memories of a beautiful game were shared when a squad of football veterans got together for a nostalgic lunch.
In what has become a monthly occurrence, more than a dozen former footballers got together in Great Yarmouth to share stories and spin yarns of their playing days.
It began with just four, Mickey Boyce, Arthur Fisk, Richard Myhill and Kenny Copeland, but word soon spread and others got involved.
The group, who played for Great Yarmouth and Gorleston in the 60s and 70s, have even attracted former professionals to their meetings - which they've named 'The Boyce Brigade'.
Mr Fisk said: 'Every one of us has their own stories to tell and a love of football. It's all about reminiscing about our playing days and discussing how the game has changed. We're hoping the group will continue to grow.'
