A NEW walking football programme is set to kick off on October 30 at the Bridgwater United Community Sports Trust.

It will run for twelve weeks and will take place at the Bridgwater & Taunton College campus in the indoor sports centre in Bridgwater.

Aimed at participants aged 50 and over, walking football is a non-contact and slower-paced version of the beautiful game.

Community development manager at the BUCST, Oli Moore said the programme is a really inclusive way for people to get involved in football.

"This is a great way for the people of Bridgwater to get involved in football as you don't need any previous experience."

"It is such an inclusive set-up, both men and women can join us; it will be roll-on and roll-off substitutions so it will be great," Moore said.

The sessions will focus on social activity and are structured so that players play in groups with individuals of their similar level of ability.

On top of that, the programme also includes refreshments and entrance to a home matchday for the Bridgwater men's team.

Each session is just £2 and players can sign up online or in person; https://www.bridgwaterunitedcst.com/walking-football/.
