On Wednesday, we moved into our lovely shiny new home for our Great Sankey Walking Football Session. The venue St Gregory's High School is the same as is the time 8-9pm but they have a lovely new sports hall for us to play in. It's a bit bigger than the old one with no old 1980s gym equipment jutting out of the wall or trampolines in the way.
It's a great venue and has a lot more space than we are used to so a few balls went astray and there was a little bit of dubious walking.
However the spirit is still the same and the game played as it should be....for enjoyment. It was also nice to have another new player ( old school mate) and two returnees.
We have a wide age playing from early 40s to 70s all playing for their own reasons but all playing for fun.
