Further Success For Our Walking Footballers
It’s three years now since we formed our walking football programme which today boasts four weekly sessions and a registration of sixty eight players. We accommodate all football needs whether it be social sessions, friendlies, tournaments and league options.
Last August we formed our very first league team to enter the Curzon Ashton six-a-side league which spanned over seven months and twenty four matches. Previously, our pool of players have entered numerous tournaments picking up success at the Chorley Cup ‘winners’, Lancashire Cup winners along with some of our players now representing BWFC and the Northwest County teams at O50’s and O60’s.
It gives us great pleasure to share with you more walking football success as the Bolton Arena team went on to claim the Curzon Ashton league title on the very last day, last game and final two minutes of the season.
A 2-1 victory over arch rivals Nash Amblers in a title shootout game saw the team lift the trophy and claim yet more thorough deserved honours.
