Marvellous Mizzley Walking Football
Smashing turn out tonight for Football in the rain (nothing to do with cake being on offer!) We played 'til it got dark (because we were all told we had to be home when it got dark 😉) and welcomed Ann to her first session and Craig to his second.
(Sorry for the lack, and poor quality) of photos tonight...it was so dark our camera was struggling 😂)

Thanks for the great review Craig and well done to everyone who was there last Monday for making such a good impression. We think you've all earned some banana cake for next Monday! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Over 50s Exeter
The first date is now October 17th and not September 19th.
This is because Bournemouth have requested the change.
I am assured that if a team cannot attend a given date in future they will forfeit their points.
Wonderful Walking Football
A wonderful Evening of Football
Super Sunny (well, not raining anyway!) Troon : perfect fun, friendship and Football
A message from our sponsors
Our lovely sponsors, Old Guys Rule, have seen our pictures in the paper and sent us this message....
"We're pleased to hear you are all well and back on the pitch! The shirts are looking great! The OGR team all send their congratulations on the successes!"
So how do I improve as a footballer? Individually? As part of a team?
Whether we improve as a footballer, a team mate or as a person, depends on our mindset. How we think about ourselves, our skills and interactions has a massive impact on not only how our team performs but on our personal lives as well.
For example, as a footballer, do you try to keep the ball and personally try to dribble it into the net, or do you pass it quickly to a free player in your team? Do you give positive encouragement and advice to team mates or shout at them and get angry when someone makes a mistake? Are you open to improving your Football or do you think that you're just right and you don't need training or drills to learn or reinforce skills?
Have a look at the charts below and think about your Football...both your individual skills and how your work as part of a team. Be honest with yourself. Set targets if you want to. Only you can make yourself a better player or a better person.
What's your mindset?
