Historic sport makes a comeback

A sport which was popular in parts of East Kent hundreds of years ago is being revived. Goal running involves two teams with players trying to catch their opponents before they make it back to base. It's a more complicated version of the game of 'tag' or 'it'. Teams from Maidstone Hockey Club have been training for a match against Ashford Barbarians rugby club later this month. We talk to one of the players Josh Littler and Vivienne Vidal, from Woodchurch Museum, who has organised the event.

Three Southampton fans and 50 Dutch supporters have been arrested following clashes in the Netherlands ahead of their Europa League game against Vitesse Arnhem.

Riot police were called to Korenmarkt, the city's bar district, shortly after 5pm on Thursday when a number of Southampton fans were seen throwing chairs and fighting with Dutch fans.

Onlookers said that a group of fans had charged into the square and that provocation had come from supporters of Feyenoord, who play in nearby Rotterdam.

Riot police and horses stormed in after glasses, chairs and punches were thrown.

A club spokesman said: "Southampton Football Club are aware of an incident away from the official fanzone in Arnhem.

"Fifty Dutch fans have been arrested and three three English. We are continuing to liaise with local police and will take relevant action against those involved."
