Although the season is over, Vintage Celtic’s over 50’s Walking Football Team is still active.  The squad currently have two weekly sessions as follows:

Monday – 6pm to 7pm at Active Copley, Stalybridge (Astro-Turf)

Wednesday – 11am to 12noon at Astley Sports Village, Dukinfield (3G)

Both sessions are £3.00 per player, per session and are open to male and female players over fifty.

The format is simple – no running, non-contact, no over head height. Both sessions are overseen by a qualified Manchester FA Walking Football Referee.

Vintage Celtic will be taking on a team representing Chorley FC Community Trust, in a friendly fixture at Bower Fold, prior to the pre-season friendly v Burnley FC U23’s on Wednesday 18th July. The game will be kicking off at 6.30pm and demonstrating walking football at it’s finest until 7.15pm.

The over 55’s Team will also be taking part in a tournament over at Droylsden Academy on Saturday 28th July at 11am.
