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

Click here to see the latest FA guidance. 


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.

GREAT NEWS!

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 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Further Lockdown 

Dear Troon Walking Footballers,

It is with much sadness and regret that we have taken the decision to cancel our plans for the return of Walking Football to Troon for the foreseeable future.

As you will know we have been investigating a return to Grouter Park as well as a potential new venture into Gwinnear.

Yesterday’s announcement has put an end to these plans for the moment. As it is we will look again at the start of 2021 for a potential restart. This is, of course, disappointing news and news you would rather not receive but we must be resilient, not be downhearted but we must look forward with enthusiasm and find an optimism that things will get better and we will once again meet up to play this wonderful game that we have grown to love.

In the meantime may you and all those you hold dear remain safe, healthy and in good spirit. This is not the end of our story, we will be back.

Two years ago we were all ready for our first session, half thinking no oue would turn up and we'd have to quit. Thank you everyone for proving us wrong 😃

Footballing Friendship 

Well tonight saw the sun setting on our last session of walking football up at Grouter Park for the foreseeable future.
With the latest government restrictions we are having to put our walking football plans on hold. It is going to hurt and we will all miss our weekly get together the banter, the laughs, the football and oh yes the banana cake. It was great to go out on such a high tonight- great football played in a lovely spirit. Fantastic goal from Steve P, worth the admission fee on its own! Remember though that today was just the end of our latest chapter. It is not the end of our story. We will be back and we will be stronger because of the bonds we have built up especially over this summer. Wear your medals with pride you’ve earned them with all of your efforts, commitment and support. We are going to be here for you whatever happens in the days, weeks and months to come. As one of my footballing heroes once said, “it’s been emotional!”
