The club continues to develop with imaginative ways of providing more opportunities for the whole community to play football.

Its latest venture is to set up an Over-50’s Walking Football. It’s just the same as normal football except there is no running.

It’s a good way for older people to keep fit and continue to enjoy a game of football.

The Walking-Football group now has around 10 players for each of its two sessions at the Leisure Centre in Cheadle.

The Friday session (2-3pm) is for beginners (women welcome); while the Thursday session (6.30-7.30pm) is a bit more competitive and attracts the younger and more active over 50’s

There is also a session at Leek’s Brough Park Leisure Centre, on Thursdays from 3pm-4pm.

New players always welcome of whatever standard.

No membership needed, though each player pays £1 to take part per session.

And no booking is needed – just turn up!
