We played a walking football tournament in Gibraltar this week. The criteria was over-65s only as Gibraltar do not accept players under that age!
For the WFS Marbella team we took Brian Gregory as Captain, Steve Chapman, Steve Whitehouse, Ron Waugh, Fred Harding and Brian Russell. For the WFS San Pedro team we had Jim King as Captain, Ron Young, Philip Cross, Rob Brown in goal and Kevin Narain.
Each team played two games of 30 minutes each against 2 teams from Gibraltar and we did well, certainly in the first game and Brian Russell was named Man of the Tournament for us.
The Gibraltar Football Association kindly laid on food for us after the game and presented us with a pennant, a glass Rock of Gibraltar and lapel pins for everyone. We are hoping to arrange a return leg at our place for the first week of April.
But we are beginning to set in place some regular tournaments each year, with the Algarve, Gibraltar and Almeria being likely destinations for us every year!
