Still time to claim your place on Older Men’s Walking Football team!

The first session of a new Walking Football programme has kicked off in Ballymena, with places still available for anyone interested in joining in!

The initiative, which is funded through Everybody Active 2020 and is being delivered in partnership with Mid and East Antrim Borough Council and Harryville Men’s Shed, will run for six weeks.

Irish FA and UEFA B Licence Coach, Ian Getty, is rolling out the Older Men’s Walking Football sessions in Harryville Community Centre every Thursday from 4 pm to 6 pm until 12 March.

The aim of the project is to provide an opportunity for those who want to get active again in a fun and social environment.

No one is too old to take steps to improve their physical and mental wellbeing and the programme is open to everyone and free of charge.

This is the perfect way to ease back into football through a series of warm-up, ball work, games and cool down exercises and allows everyone to participate at their own level.

For further details about getting involved, please contact Gary Boyd, Council Sports Development Officer on 028 2563 3316 or email Gary.Boyd@midandeastantrim.gov.uk #MEActive #EverybodyActive2020
