Walking football anyone?


Walsall Walking Football Group at Sneyd recently – from their Facebook page.

Had an enquiry this morning from Clayhanger resident Gillian, who’s after Information on Walking Football groups locally.

This is an activity of increasing popularity with the more senior gentlemen of our community, and although I can find some information, anything people have about the activity locally would be most welcome, please.

Hi Bob,

Just wondered if you or anyone who can help. My dad moved to live with me in Clayhanger 6 months ago, he’s a young 79 fairly physically fit.

He’s looking for a Walking Football group in the area.

Any ideas or anyone who wants to start one?

Kind Regards
Gill on behalf of Albert Vincent

Now, I had a look, and found this Facebook page but it’s not immediately local:
