BOLTON has a proud sporting tradition when it comes to rounders with hundreds of women having competed in thriving local leagues over the years.

Competition has been fierce but matches have always been played in the right spirit.

Here we head back into the archives to looks at some of the teams from the early 1980s who were part of a highly-competitive rounders’ scene.

Perhaps you were a member of one of the teams or you may recognise someone who is pictured.
