Walking Football Coming To Shielfield!

UPDATE – This has now switched to Wednesday nights through the Winter at Longridge Towers Sports Hall from 6.30-7.30pm.


Earlier this year, Berwick Rangers Community Foundation launched the first weekly Walking Football event for local Over 50’s at Longridge Towers.

And Berwick Rangers are delighted to confirm that the event is now coming to Berwick, taking place between 6pm-7pm every Monday night on Old Shielfield.

Starting 16th May, people of all ages are welcome to come along and play in the sun, with all players who attend the first night even able to enjoy the session completely free of charge!

Back in January, organiser Matty Moor revealed: “It’s great fun. The ‘walking’ element allows for the creation of a level playing field for all involved. The beauty of that is that it helps to ensure a competitive environment for all players.

“But there’s no doubt it’s very testing, too. You must constantly think about your movement to try stay one step ahead of the game. There’s an arguement that by slowing things down, it introduces a more tactical battle.

“And of course, because of your constant movent, it makes for a great cardiovascular workout, too!”

Players are asked to enter via Gate A. For more information on the event, contact Matty on 07470 032 678.
