EASTLEIGH FC WALKING FOOTBALL STAND TOGETHER WITH UKRAINE
Our thoughts are with the brave people of Ukraine as they fight against the invasion of their land. As part of the global football family, EFCWFC wish to make this statement. “Our thoughts are with the families, friends, and teammates of young Ukrainian footballers Vitalii Sapylo (21) and Dmytro Martynenko (25), football’s first reported losses in this war.”

Here you will find all you need to know about Eastleigh FC’s thriving Walking Football section. We are proud to be an integral part of Eastleigh FC.
This website is for the benefit of members, prospective members or just for those who want to find out more about Walking Football.
We play on Thursday afternoons and Monday evenings all year round and both sessions are open to all.
On Thursdays we normally run 2 sessions back to back with 24 players in each session. In addition and in parallel we have an ‘older’ group for those who want an even more sedate form of Walking Football or are recovering from injury.
Monday evenings usually attract 20 – 25 players player including some of our ‘younger’ players who are still working during the day.
Your first session will be a free ‘taster’ session to find out if it is for you.
If refereeing, rather than playing is your thing, then again, you are more than welcome to come and join in with us. No VAR here!
After your taster, the cost is £5 per session which goes to cover the cost of hire of the pitch. We play on the all weather 3G surface at the Silverlake stadium.
All you need is to be 50+, some football kit and suitable footwear for a 3G all weather pitchm
WHY GET INVOLVED WITH WALKING FOOTBALL?
.’We don’t stop playing because we grow old – we grow old because we stop playing!’ Not our words but those of George Bernard Shaw but sum up the views of the rapidly growing band of Walking Footballers, both at Eastleigh and throughout the UK. It takes us back to the old days of dressing room banter. The only difference is that the topic of conversation is less likely to centre on the opposite sex and more likely to be around what statins we are taking!
