Stuck in the hoose?

So, you’re fed up being stuck inside. Only allowed out for the essentials or brief exercise, and definitely no walking football.

Fancy something to pass the time? How about you click the link below and study the rules/laws of the game?

Scrolling further down the page will give you the comprehensive rules/laws lists.

Hopefully, by the time we get back to playing again, all our members will be experts. Might even get some new volunteer refs for our sessions.

The Rules Of The Game

 

Arbroath FC Hospitality

Ten young gentlemen from Arbroath walking football club were at Gayfield on Saturday (22-02-20) For the match against Ayr United. AWF had booked a hospitality package in the 36-0 lounge.

Everyone had a great day and we would like thank everyone at Arbroath FC for their hospitality (see what we did there?), we were made to feel like royalty from the moment we arrived, right up until we left. Food was great, banter was great and the company was great. It’s just a pity that the game was called off at half time. But, to be fair, it was the correct decision.

We must stress that the hospitality isn’t just for a blokes day out, it’s for everyone. We highly recommend the hospitality at Arbroath. 10/10

East Fife Invitational

On Sunday 16/2/20, two AWF teams travelled to a sunny but bitterly cold & windswept Methil Stadium in Fife to play a series of friendly matches with East Fife Walking Football Club.

The series of friendly matches saw the first competitive appearance of Gordon ‘Gogs’ Smith, a product of the club’s youth policy.

Team ‘Hatchet’ men adopted the policy of playing against the wind in all four of their matches and were quickly into their stride beating Atletico Arthritico 3-0 (Hatchet 1 Milney 2).

Their next match was against their colleagues the Burnie Boys in which they ran out comfortable 6-0 winners with Gogsy scoring his first competitive goals (Milney 3, Gogsy 3).
Match 3 saw the Hatchet men play Borussia Bypass (arguably East Fife’s strongest team).
Gogsy took centre stage scoring all 3 goals in a fine 3-0 victory.

The Hatchet men’s final match was against Stent Johnstone. four goals from Milney and

two fae Grouch plus a cracking goal from East Fife (to deny The Cat a tournament clean sheet) sealed a fine team performance and a 6-1 win over the Stent, an unbeaten series of matches and the accolade of winning the first series of friendly matches between the 2 clubs.

Afterwards the teams were treated to hospitality in the East Fife hospitality bar & our thanks go out to our East Fife counterparts for making us so welcome.
Mike Burnett (club captain) on behalf of AWF proposed a vote of thanks to our opponents.

Bailey Menmuir

On the same night that Arbroath FC hosted the Bailey Menmuir charity football match, Arbroath walking football asked if their players would like to donate.

A total of £115 was raised on the night. All the money raised will be donated to The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) The CALMzone is leading a movement against suicide, the biggest single killer of men under 45 in the UK and the cause of 18 deaths every day.

Thanks to Dave Milne (AWF match secretary) who suggested that we raise money for this great cause.
