January 2021 -Update
Another year for walking football...eventually.
It's been a sad start to the year for many but we're still here, As far as we know all of our lovely walking football family are fit and well. Feel free to check in and update us all as to your doings!
We are currently hoping that after this lockdown, maybe April time, it will be light enough to start outdoor sessions again, in the evening. Obviously this is all 'depending' but we do have a plan and we are intending to start back as soon as we feel its safe to do so.
The FA have not updated their guidance to us since the start of December but they have issued more guidance on the rules of WF for refs to follow.
The Cornwall WF committee are not meeting at present so there are no tournaments planned for 2021 and all of the WFA, IWFF and Welsh WF tournaments have been cancelled and are pending new dates.
We will post here when we have news but otherwise we are just living quietly and waiting for everyone to get vaccinated....we were even thinking that given the order people will be vaccinated, walking football should be the first sport to be able to fully resume in the country!
Safe safe everyone.
FA guidance 01/12/2020
Indoor football is now allowed but with no more than six people in total. This would mean one coach and five players which isn't workable with all the playing and sanitisation rules.
Sadly until this rule changes, or it is the spring and we can go outside without rain coats and studded boots, walking football will not be restarting.
We are as gutted as you. Stay safe everyone and we'll keep you updated and look forward to a spring restart.
Our very own Wonder Woman, Christine, has been selected by England Walking Football to attend their National England Ladies trials in February.
Since joining our club, Christine had gone from strength to strength. She has a fantastic attitude to the game and her team mates and is always willing to learn.
Who knew that walking the dog could help you to the England trials?!
We are really proud of you! Well done Christine 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
