A NEW series of ‘walking football’ sessions is starting up in Helensburgh next week.

Run by Helensburgh FC, the sessions are aimed at those aged 50 and over, but are open to anyone who feels they’re no longer able to keep up with the pace of the traditional 11-a-side or five-a-side formats of the game.

All the rules are the same as full-blown football, with one big difference – you can only walk.

The first session will take place at Hermitage Academy on Wednesday, November 16.

To register your interest please contact Sam Gemmell on 0773 895 3810 or Paul Campbell on 0784 133 2932.
