WALKING FOOTBALL AVAILABLE FOR OVER 50’S!

16 January 2015

Accrington Stanley Community Trust are pleased to announce the beginning of a new programme! Walking Football is the latest practical activity to be delivered by the trust and will be available to all adults who are over the age of 50!

“Walking football is a brilliant way to exercise, create new friends and even re-live those childhood memories” explains Kris who will be the lead coach on the session.

The Community Trust has teamed up with Age UK Lancashire to provide the sessions which will begin on the 30th January 2015. Walking football is quickly becoming the sport to play! It increases cardio vascular fitness levels and helps control weight gain, not to mention gets a group of guys together to do something different!

This format of the beautiful game is very similar to the mainstream structure however there are a few modifications. It is non-contact and anyone that sprints, runs or jogs while the ball is in play will be penalised with a free-kick being awarded to the other team. If the ball goes out of play, the game will be restarted with a kick in.

The session is available to anybody over the age of 50 and do not require a booking, so dig those old trainers out and slip into that Stanley shirt!
