Footballers don handbags for charity match
A carnival weekend in Cornwall kicked off this weekend with local men dressing up for a drag football match.

Residents of Sticker came together to watch the lads, who donned handbags and hairpieces as part of a charity game, The Cornish Guardian reports.

Player’s braved the wet and windy weather to celebrate the sixth annual carnival match which sees older villagers take on the younger ones.

Last year’s losing side had to play in drag and it seems that the older team will have to put their women’s clothing back on for next year’s match after being beaten by the youngsters 5-4.

Also at the carnival were 100 young people who took part in a fun run, and 400 runners who joined a five-mile road race before the traditional village fete.

Carnival chairman Malcolm Vian praised the event and told the newspaper: “Everybody has had a lot of enjoyment so far despite the weather and despite the happenings.”
