Spence, Joseph and Ormerod To Join New Walking Football Launch

Trio To Attend New Venue For Community Trust Initiative

29 June 2019

Ex-Pool players Derek Spence, Marc Joseph and Brett Ormerod will join Blackpool FC Community Trust for an exciting re-launch of Walking Football on Wednesday evening.

A variant of the beautiful game, allowing older people to participate for fun and to stay active, Walking Football has currently been operating for those 50+ at PlayFootball on a Thursday night. 

However, it will now be moved to Wednesdays from this week, as well as a new venue - Unity Academy on Warbreck Hill Road. 

What's more, due to popularity, there will now also be a Walking Football group for those 35+ on a Wednesday. 

The 35+ session is played at a slightly faster pace. Running is not permitted, nor is physical contact. 

Just for this Wednesday (3 July) Walking Football for both age categories will take place from 5pm until 7pm, with regular breaks. The cost of attending this week's session is £4. 

From Wednesday 10 July, the 50+ session will be held from 5pm until 6pm (cost £4) and the 35+ session will be from 6.30pm until 8pm (cost £5). 

Can’t make these times? 

In addition to these sessions, The Trust will continue to run Walking Football sessions at Playfootball on Monday evenings:

50+ - 4.30pm until 5.30pm
35+ - 6pm until 7pm
