SBiTC’s Cov based Walking Football is up and walking on its usual Thursday slot tomorrow (30th June 2016). The summer is beconing evening though June has been a bit of a washout so no reason not to join other sporting over 50s and get warm, healthy and fit with a bunch of new friends. You might have seen the boys (including CCFPA’s Billy Bell, Frank Pritchard and CCFC Legend Dietmar Bruck) demonstrating the game at half time in the Sky Blues Ricoh home game against Millwall last April (above right). CCFPA invites you to join the happy band of senior football players at St.Finbarr’s Sport & Social Club, 303 Holbrooks Lane, Coventry CV6 4DG where the sessions are run this and every Thursday.
The sessions are designed to offer gentle but competitive exercise for the over 50s and start at 10.30am running through to around noon. All it costs is £3 (including hot and cold refreshments). So, if you want to come look sharpish, get out your football boots/trainers and get along to St Finbarrs!
CCFPA full members including the likes of Dietmar Bruck, Ron Farmer, Ken Brown, Bill Tedds, Ian Goodwin, Dave Bennett, committee members Dean Nelson, Billy Bell and Frank Pritchard and a number of Associate Members can often be found amongst the participants and supporters at the sessions (at least 30 regularly turn up usually including a few newbies!), so why not join the regulars?
If you can’t make this session there is another regular event locally too in Bedworth next and every Tuesday (same time and cost) held at Bedworth Town FC’s Oval ground. Both sets of friendly events are run by CCFC’s Sky Blues In The Community run by former Sky Blue defender (and CCFPA member) Dave Busst and have always been supported by the Coventry City Diamond Club, Coventry City Former Players Association and Covsupport News Service and their members.
For more information about the sessions at both sites you can contact Sky Blues in the Community’s Health Manager, Hiedi Sloan (telephone: 02476 786 314 Text: 07813 455 531 or by email: email@example.com). SBiTC can also be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
