Alan Camsell may be 88 years old, but that hasn't stopped him from showing up every Friday as a goalkeeper for local walking football team Penrhyn Bay Strollers FC, based in Llandudno, North Wales. He was seen stopping shots and feeding his outfield teammates the ball during a match on Friday. Camsell started to play football in his forties, but decided to move to a team set up for those of retirement age, after he found that he was playing with the grandsons of previous players.
