PLENTY of men took their first steps in a new Dover Athletic venture at Crabble on Sunday morning – walking football.
Over 20 men aged over 50 had a shot at playing the game.
The opening session of the project, which is run in conjunction with Dover District Council, attracted plenty of interest from those who thought their playing days were over.
The aim of the programme is to engage with the community to provide an opportunity for men aged 50+ to become more socially and physically active.
Each Sunday session starts at 10am and finishes at 11.30am.
The first five weeks will also be FREE of charge , so come along and have a go at playing!
The rules of the game are much the same as what we know – however, there are some differences.
Anything so much as a jog is prohibited for a start!!
Other rules include free kicks are indirect, kick-ins replace throws, there are no offsides and the ball must be kept below head height.
