DARING soccer players have ditched their kit to bear their footballs to raise money for their club. Players from Draycott FC posed naked at the team's ground for a 2007 calendar.Club secretary and calendar photographer Kinlay French said: "We wanted to do something different to raise money, so I had the idea of doing a naked calendar."The calendar features shots of players from both Draycott teams, which play in divisions one and four of the Weston and District League. Kinlay added: "Some of the wives and girlfriends showed up to watch the photo shoot, but the lads made sure their props were in place before taking their kit off."The calendars are now on sale at the Strawberry Special pub in Draycott, priced £8, or from Kinlay on 01934 824246.
