Over 65’s Walking Footballers Bow Out Of The Cup!

Our Over 65’s Walking Football Team were in action at JMO in the Regional Semi Final of the FA National Walking Football Cup this morning.

Unfortunately they exited the competition going down 3-0 to a very strong Culcheth WF side. Two excellent first half goals and one “dubious” one in the second half gave our visitors the win and we wish them well in the Regional Final.

The home side were reduced to 5 players for a mandatory 4 minutes after a few indiscretions but still held their own during that spell.

It has been a great experience for all the players who have taken part across all the age groups at over 60, 65 and 70 and excellent progress has been made.

The Southport Over 65 squad was Rob Urwin (GK), Steve Dean, Roger Cass, Mike Bates, Steve Thompson, Colin Dale, Paula Milnes, Phil Murphy & Claude Devito.
