Walking Football International Matches

These historic and pioneering matches took place on May 13th 2018 at the magnificent Amex stadium in Brighton.

In the world’s first ever walking Football international, both England teams came out on top against the competitive and skilful Italians.

In the Over 50’s match goals from Neil Evans and Paul Walton won the game. Man of the Match was the Italian goalkeeper Luigi Martinoli.

A superb hat trick from Man of the Match Peter Stacey saw a comfortable 3-0 win for the over 60’s despite an Italian missed penalty. This game was also refereed by our very own regular visitor Jonathan Sinfield, who comes out to Marbella two or three times a year.

Over 50’s manager Paul Murtagh said ” An amazing experience capped off by 2 fine performances from our teams”

Over 60’s manager Stuart Langworthy said “ What a fantastic and historic weekend. The matches were competitive but played in great spirit. We were all thrilled to be a part of it and to have won”.
