Thirty players turned up for the Welton Walking Football Tournament to celebrate one year of the game at the Manor Park ground.

This format of the beautiful game has increased in popularity throughout the UK over the past year.

It allows former players to dig out their old boots and relive their youth on the field at walking pace.

Organiser John Mulhall said: “The fitness of the lads has increased during last 12 months and not only that players have become great friends.

“The social aspect of our weekly training sessions is as important as the physical exercise that goes with the game.”

Welton Imps Walking football Club meet at Manor Park, Welton every Thursday at 11.00am.

Just turn up and join in. Age is not an issue.
