Walking Football Scotland along with our partners North Lanarkshire Leisure and Health and Social Care North Lanarkshire are looking forward to next Monday (11th March 2019), to kick off the Inaugural Over 65’s National walking football league at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility.
Fixtures will be held between 12.15pm – 1.15pm each month on the following dates:
Monday 11th March
Monday 8th April
Monday 13th May
Monday 12th August
Monday 9th September
Monday 14th October
Ten teams have entered the competition in this the first year for an Over 65 age group.
Ayr United Football Academy
East Kilbride Gerihatricks
Gala Fairydean Rovers
Heart of Midlothian
North Lanarkshire Leisure A
North Lanarkshire Leisure B
Tweedvale Walking Football team
Games will be played between 12.15pm – 1.15pm and everyone is asked to arrive no later than 11:30am, to be registered in plenty of time to change and warm up.
Note for all TEAMS
Every team will play outside 4 times across the year. (where possible) The teams will play outside twice in a row on pitch 5 before then completing the rest of their fixtures inside. This ensures throughout the course of the league every team play the same amount of games inside and outside. So in the first set of fixtures both Hearts and Glasgow Sport will be outside twice.
Points : Three points for a win and One point for a draw.
