Last weekend, Cornwall FA were delighted to see the second round of fixtures take place in the East and West of the County for the Age UK Cornwall Walking Football League.
Last month, the Age UK Cornwall Walking Football League was launched across the County with league fixtures taking place at Launceston College and Camborne College. With the sun blaring down on Sunday 10th July, the second round of fixtures were played in great spirits.
George Roberts (Cornwall FA Football Development Officer - Youth and Adult Male) attended the festival in the East adding, "It was great to be able to attend the East fixtures for Round 2 of the Age UK Cornwall Walking Football League. The games were played in great spirits and to see all the teams enjoying their football was a pure joy. Although the weather was extremely hot, the skill and effort given by the players was reflected in some very closely-competed games and some excellent team and solo goals. It was also great to see some new players taking part in the league who have taken their first steps into walking football and the accommodating, friendly and social environment the sport provides".
A reminder of remaining league dates can be viewed below:
Round 3 - Sunday 14th August - 2pm to 5pm
