It must be a new Tuesday tradition to play on the Green! Next year, we'll ask James to do one of the other games and see if that changes anything...
That's true Northside girl :D
We're on the edge of the Green, right by New Bridge Road, by the roundabout.
James's money is on the Downies he says.
Massive push from the Downies they are almost on the road - steam is coming off em, Uppies trying to push it back but Downies not letting them.
Sarah's admiring the dedication of Uppies & Downies players - she's spotted one who is obviously a painter who has come straight from work!
The rain is holding off, thankfully, although it keeps trying to.
Maybe it's Workington's answer to the Hokey Cokey?
The ball came out the scrum, bounced three times to the left, three times to the right, and went back into a scrum again. We're going down, verrrryyyyyyyy sloooowwwwwwlyyyyyyy
so we're still in the centre of the Green
Scrum dispersed and reformed about two yards from where it was....
Bit disappointed in James - he could've got a bit nearer!
Picture of the night coming up....
Very brief reminder of what the ball looks like and the scrum is now in the centre of the green
It must be very hot in that scrum
Player has just fainted - he's fine, having water.
Sarah says steam is coming off the scrum and she doesn't want to get too close and she reckons there will be a few grass stains as the grass has just been cut!
It's in the centre of the Green but Downies are pushing hard
Ball's got thrown around a few times - Downies have momentum coming towards road, moving towards Tesco.
Someone's grabbed the ball and run - towards Sarah now!
Still moving back and forth and up and down on The Green.
Nice to see you Jacko! We've already been in the beck
Surge forward - people are jogging after it, it's moving that fast. Centre of scrum pushing back and forward. There is an ambulance nearby but we're not sure if that's on standby or is completely unrelated.
Moving towards Learning Land now - Uppies taken upper hand but now scrum haqs fallen over.
Ball up in air - now on the Green by the wall - James thinks he's cursed, this is his third Uppies & Downies and the third time it's ended up on the Green.
Scrum now coming towards green - fallen over now and pressed up against hedge.
Still a stalemate at Allerdale House! And now it's starting to rain.
Scrum wrapped itself round the fence behind Allerdale House
