Lisnagry FC Walking Football and Kids Soccer

Published on July 24, 2020

Can you walk? Can you kick a ball ? Would you like to meet with people in your community for some fun and exercise ? All within public health guidelines!

Hello everyone, my name is David Walsh, I live locally in Lisnagry & when speaking recently with Fr Tom, he asked me to do a small piece on Lisnagry FC & our new walking football.

I will start with the walking football, as it is a new development that I and Lisnagry FC are particularly excited about. We started playing walking football about 4 weeks ago and it has grown rapidly over this short timeframe.  It is non-contact, socially distant and suitable for anyone aged from 40 to 90. There are over 40,000 men and women playing this in the UK. Currently we meet twice a week at 9pm in the green in front of castleoaks hotel on Tuesdays and 7pm and in Newtown park opposite Castletroy college on thursdays. Further details are available on www. walkingfootball.ie

In relation to our football club, we are delighted to be recruiting kids from 5 to 18 and have two junior teams.
At kids level, we have are very proud of our policy that there is equal time for every player and every player gets a chance in every position. We would be so delighted to see girls and boys join us. We are particularly looking for girls or boys for our under 15s age group.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
