A walking football league looks set to take strides into Fylde.
Age UK Lancashire has teamed up with Sainsbury’s St Annes store in a bid to establish a competition to increase activity levels among the over-50s – and is looking for people in that age group to get involved.
Proving increasingly popular in various parts of the country, including Blackpool, walking football sees the game played at a more sedate pace.
Sainsbury’s Jackson Mills said: “I’m so excited we are going to be in partnership with Age UK Lancashire over the next 12 months bringing walking football alive in the local community.
“This is a local initiative and we want anyone over the age of 50 to get involved.
“We’re hoping to have our first groups set up by September and are currently finalising a venue.”
To get involved, call Age UK Lancashire on 0300 3031234.
