Walking Football

Walking Football

We have a growing band of walking footballers of all ages and sexes and everybody is welcome to join the weekly sessions on Mondays or Wednesday evenings at 7pm-8pm on the 3G Pitch at Broadhurst Park.

Mondays tends to be quicker and Wednesdays more sociable. Mondays sessions cost £3 and Wednesdays currently cost £5 as we have lower numbers but this cost will reduce as numbers increase.

If you are interested in joining any of the Walking Football activities please contact the FCUM office via: tom.conroy@fc-utd.net in the first instance and your details will be passed on.

FCUM v Nash Ramblers Saturday 27th January

Prior to the FC v Curzon Ashton match on Saturday 27th January we have been challenged to a friendly match v their Walking Football team (Nash Ramblers) on the 3G pitch. (time to be confirmed).

The agreement is that it’s to be an over 60’s match with an allowance of two 50+ players per side. The match will have a referee so “walking” will be enforced. As it’s a friendly it’s not envisaged to be over competitive and we hope that it will be an enjoyable occasion for everybody.

A second friendly match is being arranged FCUM v Vintage Celtic and a date of Friday 9th February has been pencilled in with a 11am kick off.
