Goals Galore

16 June 2015

Walking Football team make their debut.

Over the past few months, Colchester United's Football in the Community programme has been running Walking Football for ladies and gentlemen aged 50+.

Walking Football is a slower version of the beautiful game, that has been designed to help the over 50s back into football and exercise, with no running and no slide tackles.

Having had a number of sessions together and got the basics of Walking Football under their belts, the U's first walking football Match saw the team take on Halstead at their astroturf pitch.

Halstead, who have been playing together a lot longer than the U's team, went ahead twice in the game but the Colchester team fought back strongly to even the scores up both times.

An even contest finished with the score 5-5 at full time with some good football being played by both teams.

This was a good result for the U's boys and we are looking to book some more matches in the future.

If you are interested in joining the team, please contact Ryan Hull on 01206 755160 or
