The second national league tournament organised by Walking Football Scotland in partnership with North Lanarkshire Leisure and Health & Social Care North Lanarkshire started on Wednesday 25 April at the excellent Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility.
The tournament was opened by Scottish football legend David Hay and twelve teams from throughout the country took part in the first round of fixtures, an increase of two from last year.
Games were played in accordance with the recently published WFS ‘Laws of the Game’ and officiated by accredited referees.
Each fixture lasted 18 minutes with no breaks. Teams are awarded three points for a victory, two for a draw and one for fulfilling the tie.
Last year’s winners Hearts 56 won their opening three games and finished the day with a goal difference of plus eight. Gala Fairydean Rovers and Hearts 98 also had 100% records with goal differences of plus seven and plus four respectively.
