Top Scorers (amended)

A mistake was made with the top scorers for our indoor season.

Top scorer was indeed Davie Milne.

However, the top scorer for the over 60s was Alan Durno. It was an easy mistake to make because  Alan doesn’t look a day over 59.

I’m sure Jake Ferrier won’t mind, he has too many trophies as it is.

Top scorers

After an exciting indoor season, we now know the top scorers.

Top scorer: Dave Milne

Over 60s top scorer: Jake Ferrier

 

Great effort from both selfish strikers players

All other Player awards will be decided at a later date.

As it stands just now, we are unsure if our move to start playing outdoors is going ahead this Wednesday. We will post this information as soon as we have it.

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.

On the road again

Plans are firmly in place for Arbroath Walking Football Club to hit the road again.

After coming very close to winning the Spanish Masters in Cambrils, the club is travelling to Lake Garda in Italy to try and bring home the Italian Masters Trophy. Failing that, there is always the Cucchiaio di Legno Trophy (the wooden spoon).

The tournament is once again being organised by Walking Football Tours
These Guys have been organising walking football tours for a few years now and it shows, complete professionals from the word go. Oh! the banter is also second to none.
