Men’s Football

Each Friday (September to June), men of various ages, with a wide range of skills and talents, can re-live their boyhood dreams.

We all enjoy playing an attractive brand of football in the way it is meant to be played, this involves encouraging players during the game and a sportsman attitude throughout the time together.


Men over 16 years old – no upper limit (16-18’s need adult permission)


Every Friday (September to early June)
