Gresley FC in the Community (GFCITC) have teamed up with South Derbyshire District Council’s Village Games scheme to support the new walking football sessions in Swadlincote.
And now people living in South Derbyshire can get involved in walking football. Between 7:30pm and 8:30pm on Mondays, weekly walking football sessions are being held at Swadlincote’s Pingle School Sports Hall.
Village games coordinator Lee English, approached Gresley FC to see how the club could help. Matt Toulson, Gresley FC’s Head of Community was more than happy to offer assistance to raise the profile and help arrange matches.
The walking football programme links with GFCITC’s key strategy: To improve the lives of people within the local community by increasing participation in sport. This target has been set to be inclusive for all age groups within the community, and the walking football is a great way to get back into a sport that you may not have been able to play in recent years, or have never played before and are keen to give it a go.
The walking football session costs £3 per week, with those planning to take part urged to wear comfortable clothes suitable for walking around.
