    Hi John

    I'm currently playing with the 3 touch rule.

    My question is the other day while playing one of the opposition had his 3 touches and then stood over the ball shieling it from the opposition being able to play the ball.  Is this a foul and should the player have moved away from the ball once he has had his 3 touches?

    3 touch rule is currently only a local ruling, with neither the FA or WFA having it as part of their respective laws for walking football. As such your local provider should outline what should happen in such a situation. 

    We also use the 3 touch rule in our sessions and when this happens a free kick would be awarded if through any physicality the opponent was unable to get to the ball and take possession. It is not expected that the player moves aside, however any deliberate obstruction or impeding is called as a free kick.
