Rochdale AFC Strollers - Winners of the over 65`s Walking Football Tournament
- 10 November 2017
On Friday 10 November, Link4Life hosted the second over 65's walking football competition at Heywood Sports Village. Eight teams from across the country took part in a very friendly but competitive tournament.
The Rochdale AFC Strollers (pictured) progressed to the knock-out stage and faced Chadderton in the final. In a hard fought game, Rochdale ended up overall winners after a penalty shoot out at the end of a drawn game.
Steve Colesby who played in the tournament for the Rochdale AFC Strollers said “It was a great experience for many of the guys who had not played competitive football for many years and some who thought they never would again.”
Link4Life who run the Walking Football in partnership with the Stroke Association and Rochdale A.F.C are always looking for new players of all ages and abilities.
