Walking Football Festival Marches to Essex


We're asking players to sign-up for Walking Football Festivals being held in Romford and Maldon in July to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.

The Walking Football Festivals are for anyone over the age of 50 who wants to get involved in an innovative version of the game - regardless of ability or experience - and will be amongst 32 similar events being held across the country during the summer. Players can take part at the Forest Row Centre on Saturday 8th July and Plume High School on Saturday 15th.

Whether players want to register as part of a team, or as an individual, the County FA will welcome entries from everyone who wants to take part. Teams of six will be brought together on an informal basis, with a series of games taking place throughout the day. Registration for each festival will cost a minimum of £5 per person. Both will run from 3:30-6:00pm.

This money will be donated to The FA’s Official Charity Partner, which was set-up by Stephanie Moore MBE in memory of her husband to fund pioneering, life-saving Bowel Cancer research. Since the fund was inaugurated in 1993, mortality rates have fallen by 30% and over £23.5 million has been raised, but there is still so much more to do.

In addition to the Walking Football Festival, a number of other events will also take place during the course of the day. To register your interest, please contact Sam Robinson via E-Mail at sam.robinson@essexfa.com as soon as possible.
