Ayr United Walking Football.
« on: May 02, 2017, 11:48:42 »
On Wednesday 26th April, Ayr United’s walking football team faced up to a new challenge in the form of the first Scottish National Walking Football League matches. Held at the Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility in Motherwell, the league comprises of 10 teams (Ayr United, Fife Wanderers, Galafairydean Rovers Greater Glasgow United, Hearts 56, Hearts 98, North Lanarkshire, Stenhousemuir, Stirling and Tullibody Community FC) and will run until November.

Due to players having other commitments the United squad was relatively ‘thin’ (in numbers but not necessarily physically) and inexperienced in tournament football but the tournament ‘virgins’ were determined to put on a good show in the league’s opening three matches.

Player Manager Gary ‘I’m the boss’ McLaughlin and coach Brian ‘Biscuit Thief’ Pitt made it clear in a pre-tournament briefing that their team would need to have a quick learning curve as the standard of football at this level was high and that players could not expect space or time on the ball or regular toilet breaks.

That sounds a great venture. Is that an Academy or club funded tourney/jolly or do the players have to pay for that themselves ?
