I don't understand your poll on back passes?
What do you actually want us to vote on, which answer is right or which ruling we would prefer?
The poll is wrong anyway.
1 and 3 are the same options but the FA Law is not the same as the WFA:
The FA law states :
An indirect free kick is awarded to the opposing team if a goalkeeper commits one of the following offences:
• touches or controls the ball with their hands or feet, in the penalty area, for more than six seconds
• receives the ball back directly from a team mate
to whom they have just passed the ball without the ball having made contact with any other player
• allows the ball to stop in a stationary position in the penalty area without touching it for more than six seconds
Hello to you both, sorry if we did not explain this better, we are trying to vote across the country regarding the following,
When the goalkeeper rolls the ball to his player, can the same player pass directly back to the keeper (WFA Rule) or
the player receiving the ball from the gk has to pass to another player before gk is aloud to receive the ball again (TRA)
As we are trying to make the same rules across the country and this particular rule is different everywhere, what do you and your players prefer the rule to be?
Any other issues on rules please get in contact so we all can develop the game and go forward.
To all Walking Football clubs and players. The debate on the back pass rule across the country. Question - Once the goalkeeper passes the player the ball, is the player allowed to pass back to the goalkeeper or has to pass to another player before goalkeeper receives the ball? Please vote across the country

Finally, what everyone has been waiting for……………………
Welcome to the non-contact walking football Super League!!!
Hello to all managers and organizer's,
After a very successful Premier league, I have been contacted by many clubs from around the Country to join our league.
These are teams from The Premier League, Championship, League 1 and 2 down to the National Leagues and more.
I am very happy to have been asked to organize and run the biggest Walking Football League in the UK.
How the Super League will work.
The country will now be split in 2 the North (Leeds) and the South (Romford, Essex) both with teams entering from all over to join the league they would prefer due to distance etc.
There will be £1000 for the winners of each league with £500 for 2nd place £300 for 3rd and £200 for 4th and then followed by a one-day Champions cup for top 4 finishers in both leagues.
Once the National super leagues in England are established we will then set up super National leagues in Scotland, Wales and Ireland to then develop a one-day UK Champions of Champions Cup.
Then why not go into Europe in the future.
This is a strictly over 50s walking football league. Non-contact. It will be 6 aside, with a maximum of 10 players per team on the day but can register as many players as you like.
It will take place once a month on a Sunday morning. The league will be a 22-team strong league and each team will play 3 different teams for 20 mins straight, that’s 1 hour of football per team! The cost of each month is £50 per team.
The first 22 teams entered will make the Super league and the next 22 will make the Championship and will use the 4 teams Relegation and Promotion.
First come first served basis, so please be quick to register.
Please excuse me but no time wasters please, this is a serious league!
Half way through the season there will be League Cup Tournament including both leagues together.
Start date will be the following month once all the teams have been registered, so please register as quickly as you can as places will not be held.
What to do next!
If you are serious to join the biggest league in the UK please fill in the team registration form with the deposit to guarantee your place. Only once, the signed contract and deposit has been received, your club will be registered.
Good luck and i look forward to hearing from you all.
