A Game Of Two Claves by Factious Facts

The first football match to be played in two 45-minute halves was played in the village of Colmans de la Beuf.  In those times a long the main road of the village, with each half lasting one hour.  However when the Colman goalkeeper, a local vet, was called away after 45 minutes to deal with the problematic birth of two calves, it was decided to end the first halve their and play the second halve over the same period.  These two 45 minute halves were felt much more conducive to an after match ale.  This format remains to this date.
