  2. "The Beautiful game but....

    Hi Alan, i used football for old people as an off the cuff remark. Its certainly not my opinion of what i play. I dont think anyone takes up our sport expecting to play football at a slower pace. You seem to be missing the point, the "the Beautiful Game at a slower pace " is a strap line, its a marketing tool to sell a brand or product, strap lines always accompany a title , they are never used alone. So to advertise WALKING FOOTBALL , the Beautiful game but at a slower pace, sends the message out that first and foremost its WALKING and to those who still think football is the beautiful game, sorry that you dont anymore, its at a slower pace. If it isn't used with the title of Walking Football, then its missing the point and wasted. Its the same as Gillette, the best a man can get, without Gillett the tag line could be referring to anything , a dog, a wife anything, but everyone knows it means the Razor.
  3. Hi, We will shortly start our Walking Football Interviews section We will initially have a set of questions aimed at walking football players and a set aimed at members who run or are involved in the running of a club. We will also create sets of questions suitable for other people involved in the sport such as FA Walking Football Development Officers etc. Depending on how the interviewee feels in taking part, they could be simple text based questions and answers or audio podcasts. We have the beta list of questions for walking football players, so is there anyone here would like to road test them for us? If so , visit my profile and click send message here [Hidden Content] Thank you in advance.

  5. The European Football for Development Network (EFDN) have announced that the first ever Walking Football Conference will be held in the Papendal National Sporting Centre, Arnhem, Netherlands on the 20th September 2017. The event is free of charge and starts at 10:00am and ends at 4:00pm. The EFDN are convinced that the conference will provide a unique platform for gaining valuable and inspirational insight in the field of Walking Football & Waking Sports for everyone that will attend. Billed as, 'Getting Active, Healthy and Socially Engaged' the conference is an event entirely devoted to spreading the reach of the Walking Football & Walking Sports methodology across Europe. The EFDN started working with 13 football clubs from all across Europe back in 2016 on developing the European Legends Walking Football & Walking Sports methodology. This methodology provides people of 55 years and older with the opportunity to improve their health in an encompassing way. Walking Football & Sports proves to provide participants with exactly these physical, mental and social well-being benefits. Presentations as the conference will be delivered by key members of the EFDN European Legends Walking Football programme, representatives of European football clubs, leagues, national associations. European football clubs representatives will be from SL Benfica, Fulham FC, VfL Wolfsburg, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton FC. Workshops will also be offered to clubs that are new to the sport and are interested in implementing the programme in their local community. If you would like more information or are interested in attending yourself, please visit here
  6. During half time at the historic first National League home game at a revitalised Brisbane Road, the Leyton Orient Walking Football Club members were invited to take penalties. In addition, the walking football team carried the flags pre-match which recently took place on the 8th August 2017. Partners, family members and friends all turned up to see the great event which included much spirited banter from sections of the crowd. John Barrie both a veteran supporter and walking football team member said, “What a great night! It will live in the memory for a long, long time” Len Cheston, the current chairman of the Leyton Orient Walking Football Club added “It was a great honour that has been thoroughly enjoyed by the Walking Football Club”.

  9. ask john croot FA competitions

    Has to be Over 60's for our groups now...though this may change if we have an influx of younger players - unlikely because we play during the day. We might consider Over 50's for the odd friendly game if we knew the opponents and their attitude was right. My own view is that Over 65's will become increasingly relevant as the years roll by. I cannot understand why a relatively fit person under fifty would want to play walking football anyway....
  10. ask john croot FA competitions

    Hi, my reply was to the question on banning females. in respect to the comp for any male over 18, we won't anything unless it's over 50. we have been invited to over comps over 35 and turned the invite down, there is a massive difference between someone in their 30,s and 50/60,s never mind 18 .
  11. ask john croot FA competitions

    Any male over 18? Walking Football ?? Really....
  12. ask john croot hyrarchy

    I searched the Football Association website quite recently for 'walking football' and came up with zero. Maybe things have changed.
  13. "The Beautiful game but....

    "Football for old people" that's precisely what it isn't and that serves my initial point WWF. I don't know what your definition of 'old' is but it must be different to mine. I've been doing more Refereeing than playing lately and I am fairly strict. Running has decreased - these are internal games. Physicality is almost negligible and there is a total absence of malice. Long may that continue. Three team runs a penalty is finally sinking in too - just one in the last four games at Denton. Today our group played intense walking football for an hour (24 men) average age about 67. These 10 guys stayed on for another half hour - we call them 'The Lingerers', (there are usually more of them) for another energetic game. Active people who are lucky enough to enjoy good health don't get 'old' anymore, they merely age. I'm not sure I'd even call traditional football 'the beautiful game' anymore either - too many aspects of it are plain ugly, so quite who coined that term I don't know. For me it's 'the people's game' and more people can now enjoy this related, but very different offshoot. If people are attracted to our game at the grand 'old' age of fifty and think they're about to play 'football' again, merely at a 'slower pace' that's a recipe for misunderstanding, arguments and injury in my opinion. No problem with your disagreement - that's often what forums are for.
  14. "The Beautiful game but....

    I refereed 3 fixtures again today in the LinxWF over 60s league. So that was 3 x 28 minute matches. Probably around half a dozen free kicks given for fouls. One player firmly warned after clumsy challenge near boards. Two players warned that next running offence would result in blue card, no more offences from them. Still too many free kicks for running, especially off the ball to gain advantage, but less than in last weeks games. Only two very minor bits of dissent so overall a great set of lads from all around the county. We are getting there, playslowplayfairplaywell
