The Greater Manchester Walking Football League are hosting the Martin Dawson Memorial Trophy this Sunday, 10th September. This is an over 60's tournament and we have 12 teams in 2 divisions playing in a round robin format. The top 2 in each division will go through to the semi-final knockout stage.

Division A - Hartshill Strollers, Rochdale AFC Strollers, Tameside Striders, Wakefield Wanderers Blue, Wakefield Wanderers Orange and Vintage Celtic.

Division B - AFC Blackpool Senior Seasiders, Blackburn Rovers WF, Fleetwood Town Flyers, Huddersfield Town, Rochdale Striders and Sheffield Vulcans.

This promises to be a great days walking football, with some very strong sides competing. Last year's trophy was won by Wakefield Wanderers who beat Vintage Celtic on penalties in the final.

Tameside Striders are taking a squad of ten to this non-contact Over 60's  tournament on Sunday.

This will be only the second competitive event in our short history so it will be an interesting experience for us, given the quality of some of the opposition, whom we look forward to meeting. 

We're hoping for - and expecting  some good, clean walking football  under WFA/WFU rules that's well Refereed and which everyone can enjoy.

Thanks to the organisers for the work they have put in so far into this worthy, memorial  cause.

Wishing all of the competing teams  a safe journey to and from Heywood - let the games begin !

Enjoyable tournament. The rain hammered down at times but we persevered as much as possible. Mixed fortunes for our team losing three on the bounce then  a good win and a draw to finish.  We had a good day at Heywood. The organisers deserve credit for implementing a Plan B when the weather finally got the upper hand. Made some friends on the day and the games had a friendly, sporting element about them. Maybe it was the adversity of the weather that engendered an 'all in it together' attitude, whatever it was all tournaments should be played like this.
