Defibrillator

Thanks to Tesco, Groundwork and our club treasurer Ray Parker, Arbroath Walking Football recently took delivery of a brand new defibrillator (AED ). The cash was raised through Tesco’s ‘bags of help‘ scheme and the persistence of Ray.
We feel that a defibrillator is a must for any walking football club. It’s also very reassuring for the players to know that we will have one at every session.

Sunday Friendly

On Sunday 10th March, Dundee & Angus college travelled to Arbroath to play a set of friendlies against AWF.
After a slow start in the first game, AWF ran out 9-3 winners in what was a very entertaining game.

The 2nd game saw two AWF teams pitted against each other. Wullie Craib’s team were heading toward a 3-1 defeat, when, with a few minutes left of the game, two quick goals saw them earn a draw.

Dundee and Angus college got into the swing of things and comfortably won the next two games.

In a replay of the second game, fortunes were reversed as Wullie’s team lost a two-goal lead to see the game finish all square again. Fantastic stuff

All games were competitive, but they were played in the right spirit; players from both camps putting their hands up when a free kick offence had taken place. Another good advert for walking football. Well done to all involved.
