    2 lads. Or 2 lasses but in my experience 2 lads. 1 football. each side of the road. You have to throw the ball at the opposite kerb then catch it without it bouncing. If you catch it then you go half way over the road then do it again. 3 points for a long kerbsy. a point each for the little ones. Here#s a Jock lad explaining. Different scoring up there. Plus we had to catch the ball to get in the middle. Edit - If i remember if you caught the ball you got double points. Anyway cracking game.

    We called 'em kerbies.

    Did you ever play 3 and in? What about that game where you had to kick a ball against a wall, bit like squash but with footballs? Can't remember what that was called now.

    The only Kerby I remember was Kathy Kirby. I believe she was the first model to show a few curleys.

    Also there's seems to be some variation on the terms "goalie when" and "goalie nearest" during ordinary kickabouts.

    We played "goalie when", meaning that anyone could be goalie at any time and "goalie nearest" meant that whoever was closest to the goal was the goalie.

    Dancing Dollies was a good laugh. Until the older hard lads come along.

    'O what's this dancing dollies is it'

    'Er no.'

    ''It is now'

    Start dancing then boy. Moonwalk your arse quick as fuck out the way of the ball then.

    We played 'Goalie on' in the street. If you were the goalie you could drop the ball and dribble out taking lads on and someone else would go in instead till you got back.

    Lads these days I feel sorry for them sometimes. It was like everyone was always moving and the chubby lads who weren't in to it got into it and got more athletic or would be off chucking throwing stars an that. Everyone had something.

    Very unimaginatively called ‘rebounds’ in Merthyr.

    Slamsies was just a point scoring one, SLAM spelt out the letters

    My kirbsy point system works like this

    It obviously has to hit the kirb and no bounces and catch it to get any point, none of this one bounce or that was close enough bullshit

    Standard catch = 1 point

    Running halfway across the road after throwing it = -1 point

    Creative catch/touch = 3 points

    Throwing it at the kirb, touch it off of your chest then volleying it and your opponents face = 5 points

    As for park rules with goalkeepers we just call them “rushies” or “rushy keeper”

    If you changed halfway through the game so let’s say the fast fucker who’s already scored 13 goals runs through on goal and your keeper has gone up front for a corner and you have made it back on the line, you can only save it by screaming “I’M IN!!” Before the shot is taken or it’s straight up handball
