Arbroath FC match day experience

Arbroath walking football club were invited back to Gayfield on Saturday for another match-day experience, this time it was to play Carnoustie.

The teams play during the half time interval, it gives them a chance to showcase what walking football is all about. Despite the wet, wintry conditions, both teams had an enjoyable time.

Carnoustie finished the game as the 4-2 victors.

Thanks to all at Arbroath FC for giving us the chance to play in these game.

Many thanks to Graham Black for the permission to use his pictures in our gallery

East League sponsor

Arbroath Walking Football play in the East league. This is a post on behalf of the organisers of that league.

In preparation for next season, we, the East region walking football league are looking for a league sponsor.

This year has proved very successful and every participant (each one over 50 years old ) have enjoyed themselves.
As a league, we have run at a slight loss this season, but hopefully with a bit of help from SFA and a sponsor, we should be able to take this league forward for many more seasons to come.
If you think you can help, please get in touch with me (gordyfar1@gmail.com) I will let you know what we are looking for and explain operating costs etc.

If you are viewing this on FaceBook or twitter, a share or retweet would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks

Italian Masters

8* Arbroath lads made their way to Peschiera Del Garda in Italy for Italian masters walking football tournament. The tournament was (once again) organised by Walking Football Tours. These guys have had a few years now organising this kind of tournament and this was, once again, a very well organised tournament.
The facilities were great, the location was spot on, and the company was fantastic. Can’t fault the organisers one little bit.

Arbroath were in the group that played in the afternoon, the weather was fantastic, 27 deg, not what the lads are used to back home.
The lads performed well against some very good sides. AWF progressed to the finals on the Sunday, it was no easy feat as there really wasn’t much between the teams.
Results for first day
AWF 0 Bassano Del Grapa 0
Cosmos WF 0 AWF 2
AWF 1 Stamford 0
I portici 0 AWF 0
AWF 2 Arsenal 0

Final day proved to be another hot day. In fact, it didn’t take long before Kevin had his top off and his moobs out.
The first game was a cracker, very evenly matched sides and the action was end to end. A slight lapse in concentration at the back cost AWF a goal and the game. After another 3 very close games which all finished 0-0, AWF lost their final game 3-0. The lads had performed really well on the day, but for fantastic goalkeeping, results could have been much different.
AWF can hold their heads high. Once again, they were there at the finals and not a kick in the arse away from going all the way.

Results for final day
AWF 0  Cosmos 1
Cove 0 AWF 0
AWF 0 Stamford b 0
I portici 0 AWF 0
Arbroath 0 Coste WS 3

*There were 9 lads, Jim played with the Arsenal team

Pictures from this tournament will appear in our gallery very soon.
