New FA Guidance
Great training tonight and welcome to Lyn!
Excellent training and teamwork tonight and lots of examples of good Walking Football.
A special well done and welcome to Lyn and welcome back we missed you, to Steve and Malcolm 😃⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Code of conduct
Some of you may have been aware of an incident tonight, during a game. Sadly it was necessary to send off a player for breaching our Code of Conduct. This player then chose to leave training.
This is fortunately an isolated incident and has never happened before.
We are very proud of our players' usual good conduct, good manners, sense of fair play and of the way everyone is respected and included.

Just for interest....some of the Club's Running Costs (Walking Costs?)
The above is a list of just some of the costs the club incurs for each match played at Grouter Park.
Some of your subs go towards this...the pitch upkeep, for example, and buying new footballs.
The 'College Hire' fee listed does not apply to us at the moment but when we start playing indoors again this autumn (negotiations for hire already underway) our hall hire fees will be in the region of £55 per week.
Coaches are all unpaid volunteers.
All the money you pay in subs goes to the club and you may have noticed that building work has started at Grouter Park. This is the beginnings of the 'Big Build' which will see the site have a brand new club house, re-vamped changing rooms and showers and a brand new artificial pitch with flood lights.
As things stand at the moment we do not have enough players to enter a team for any age group in either of the upcoming tournaments.....either the WFA tournament in Weston Super Mare in May, or the Welsh Open in August.
We will cancel our entry for the WFA tournament but keep options open for the Welsh Open at present.
A glorious evening up at Troon this evening for Walking Football
Goals scored, laughs had, footie played and friends made.... all in the sunshine of a lovely spring evening. Perfect.
