Sailors from the awesome American aircraft carrier USS George HW Bush came ashore to play against players from the Solent Softball League on the Royal Navy playing fields opposite Clarence Pier in Southsea.

But the teams did not keep score – it was just a friendly to give the sailors a breather before they left Stokes Bay earlier today.
