Walking football is aimed at the over 50's with a view to keeping people with lack of mobility or other issues that prevent them playing the traditional game. The rules follow those of the main game with the exception that running or kicking the ball above head height resulting in a free kick.
Stan Braycotton, Director for Atlas Converting and previous member of the winning team said, "It's a great game, for those of us that love football and still want to play to stay fit and active. People think it will be easy as you are only walking but it's still a really great workout".
