"Rev" of the Rovers

By Graeme Rayner, Aug 25 2015 08:36PM

Reverend Mark Umpleby featured on BBC1's "The One Show" recently displaying his footballing prowess (!) in a local exhibition match between priests from the diocese and local imams. Sadly, the priests lost, but Mark can be clearly seen putting in a tackle of which Norman "bite yer legs" Hunter would have been proud, and a good time was had by all.
