Rochdale AFC Strollers Winners of the over 60`s Greater Manchester Walking Football League
- 08 December 2017
On Friday 1 December, Link4Life hosted the over 60's Greater Manchester Walking Football League at Heywood Sports Village. On a sunny but cold day we were honoured by the presence of ARD German Television, who were filming a news clip ‘The Growing Popularity Of Walking Football’. With the league growing from nine teams in the first session in February this year, to fifteen teams at the final December session they certainly picked the right location.
Rochdale AFC Strollers won the league by a six point margin over runners up Nash Amblers.
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.
