Walking Football

Our Walking Football/Veterans Football sessions take place every Monday between 10am and 11am and Wednesday between 11am and 12pm at Dunes Leisure Centre.

Our Walking Football Group have been going for over four years and well over 100 people have given it a try since it started up.

The Wednesday sessions will be renamed “Veterans Football” for the Over 50’s but the age can be flexible to allow people with injuries to take part.

We have found a number of people coming along to the Wednesday sessions have found the pace a little quicker than they expected and the Walking Football has morphed into Veterans Football by default

We have joined forces with the Southport Walking Football group who were experiencing similar problems and decided to set up a Walking Football session which will adhere strictly to Walking Football rules; the second session will continue to run as a Veterans Football session. People are very welcome to attend one or both of the sessions.

The Monday session will be at Dunes  from 10-11 and will, as the title suggests be STRICTLY WALKING.

The Wednesday session (11-12) is also at Dunes and is for Over 50’s, similar rules to the Walking Football in place except the walking rule will be removed. Strictly No Contact, no penning people in, no heading, the ball must stay below head height, goals can only be scored outside the arc and no players are allowed in the arc except the ‘keeper and the goal keeper can receive a pass back but cannot return it to the person that passed the ball back to him

Colin Dale supported by Steve Thomson is leading the Monday group and Rob Urwin will lead the Wednesday group supported by Chris Cottam.

Both sessions cost just £2 per player.
