  1. I have just packed the kit for tomorrow's tournament in Wythenshawe. Looking forward to it, 9.15 start to ensure I get a parking place I have been informed there is also a Morris Dancing comp taking place in the hall. Not sure if someone has watched us play and mistaken the sport. They are expecting lots of coaches. Good news the cafe is open from 9am selling full English Breakfasts. Closes at 11.30am. Closes for half an hour the n reopens selling Sunday Lunches all sounds very sophisticated. Not sure whether to wear kit or a suit and tie. Hopefully some photos and videos
  2. A few months ago whilst we were still Lifeline one of our members was inspired to write a poem. Members of one of our sessions took out time from playing to narrate the poem. [Hidden Content] Apologies the file won't upload and I don't know howto embed facebook videos.

    To me this is the most important part of the session, if you are not prepared physically and mentally you run the risk of straining, pulling or damaging muscles ligaments etc. I have seen players who go straight on to the pitch and start blasting the ball about risking injury to not only themselves but others doing their own warm ups or setting the pitch up. I have heard all the excuses, no time, it's only walking football or I only play in goal. I have seen session leads come out onto the pitch and start doing static exercises with cold muscles. Even walking across the pitch will help to warm them up. You must start with dynamic stretches, walking , jogging. side stepping, lunges and opening/closing the gate are all good ways to warm up, Then do your static stretches. Try to make time at the end of the session to cool down. I realise a lot of us use facilities that we hire by the hour. Instead of standing waiting for the area to be clear find somewhere nearby even a corridor can be used to start your warm up. The warm up doesn't need by the same every week introduce drills using balls etc variety is the spice of life, How do you warm up? Share your warm up sessions or specific drills exercises that you find useful. I am sure someone will be grateful for your post, We all need to learn.
  6. Our team on the day.
  7. Hi Alan I will second your thoughts over the organisation of the tournament. The buffet when was the last time you had snowballs. We had a similar day to you drew with Rochdale the winners in a game we should have won, too many people running in their exuberance to get a winner. P4. W1 D3 L1. F3 A3
