Although the registration deadline for the February session of the Greater Manchester Over 60's Walking Football League has now past, we do have opportunities for the March, April and May sessions and there will be an Autumn season from September to December. See the Downloads tab on the website for the League Rules, League Team Registration Form and Team Entry Form.

February is the inaugural session of the league and we have made a decent start with 2 divisions of 4 teams. Why not join us in future months?

Hi GSH, age categories are definitely the way forward in walking football. Which part of the Netherlands are you in, perhaps we could arrange a friendly one weekend with yourselves and our club Vintage Celtic.

Thanks for your answer. Maybe  it is possible. We organise this year for the second time an international walking football tournament in our city in the east of netherlands. Almelo. There are now 5 english teams entered. Wiltshire,  chelmsford, grimsby, herne Bay and a combiteam from heanor.we choose a minimum age over 55, because the most english teams are youger thans in the netherlands.  But with the Dutch rules is that lower important. Look for the Dutch rules and the review's of the english teams from last year our website www.almelocitycup.nl. you can read the site in english.

That line up looks like the cast of Zulu. Just needed a chorus of "Men of Harlech" to complete the illusion.

Seriously though, a great morning's football, played in good spirit and an excellent standard of play.

Can't wait for March 3rd !!

Having just played in the second session, can I congratulate the organisers on a superbly run session. The three referees used were the best I have ever played under, firm, fair and consistent. 

I am in no doubt that the over 60 format is responsible for a more laid back, less testosterone fuelled but equally as committed game.

And, if there is a better surface than Heywood Sports Village on which to play, I have yet to see it.

And a free brew after !
