The story of Bristol's legendary anarchist football club, now celebrating it’s 20th anniversary.

The Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls formed as Bristol's anarchist football club who amongst many of their prolific activities organised the Alternative World Cup.

Will Simpson and Malcolm McMahon have researched the first 20 years of the history of the Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls. Simpson and McMahon are long-standing members of what is rightly known as 'Britain's Most Intrepid Sports Club'.

The team emerged from a collection of punks and kids in St Pauls and in 2012 celebrated its 20th year. During that time they have played football against the Zapatista Freedom Fighters in Mexico, sent a cricket team to Compton in Los Angeles, played football in Palestine and much more. A younger Banksy joined them to play against the Zapatista movement. Their book tells the story of the club.
