Huntingdon resident creates World Cup bar in his garage

The disappointment of England’s less than impressive performances at the World Cup in South Africa could be easily forgotten if you have a bar in your garage where you can get to work erasing those painful memories.

Alan Walford, 51, from Huntingdon, has just that. His garage has a bar and his football memorabilia collection, going back to 1966, includes items signed by Bobby Moore. It is decorated with England badges, a signed Pele shirt and even a replica of the World Cup.

Mr Walford, who is a school caretaker, told The Hunts Post: “I have set up a bar in my garage for my friends. They bring the beer and we watch football.”
