Martin Vose, OACT Head of Community, commented: “I am delighted to further strengthen our relationship with the Oldham Athletic Supporters Foundation to launch this new project. The walking football session is ideal for anyone looking to back into physical activity following an injury, ill health or simply looking for a different way to keep active but with that competitive element. The session will follow on from a similar theme of both our Womens & Mens over 30s just play session, it`ll simply be a case of turning up and getting a game started.

As a Community Trust we are keen to ensure that engagement opportunities are available for everyone within our local community and this new partnership helps us further ensure that we meet this aim.

We are conscious of the cost of living crisis that we are all currently experiencing and as such we wanted to remove as many barriers for people to participate as possible. I`d like to therefore thank West Oldham Trust for their support of the project, without this we couldn’t offer the opportunity for free.

Mick Harwood, OASF director said; Oldham Athletic Supporters Foundation's collaboration with our friends at OACT has resulted in a very successful and well attended Over 30's session on Thursday evenings. I am really looking forward to even greater participation with our newest sessions. Walking Football is one of the country's fastest growing sports, and is accessible to players of all age groups (our sessions are 18+), and I'm looking forward to sharing the pitch with other like minded people."

'Sessions will be led by an FA Level 2 Coach, but the emphasis will be on having fun and all abilities are more than welcome to join in!'
