Walking Football. The Tinsel game on Boxing Day. Attracted more than 30 players and spectators young and old for an exciting match where 4 teams played 6 games with roast chestnuts and warming apple punch on hand to give necessary sustenance against a biting wind. Overall winners – team 1.
Basic Rules. No running, no/low contact, ball must be kept below chest high, 2 x 10 minute ‘sides’ . All welcome to play or watch. Biting/gouging are sin bin acts !
Below: the November 2017 teams Barton v Street & Charlton…. score 4-4. Not that that mattered !
