The partnership with the Walking Football Caribbean and the Jason Roberts Foundation continues to flourish as the over 50s and 60s team continue their preparations for the first Caribbean entry in such a tournament.
After the initial trials the selected Caribbean team have undertaken numerous training sessions, practice games, and attended health awareness events as the final preparations for the upcoming 2023 Walking Football World Cup of Nations Finals next week.
The previous weekend at Bridgestone Arena ended with a mini football tournament, some final health checks, and a photo shoot of the team.
At a recent community event Albion legend Cyrille Regis’s daughter Michelle Regis sent a good luck message to the boys.
The Health and wellbeing benefits of participating in Walking Football – a sport for everyone, regardless of your age or ability, is apparent as the Caribbean team head to St George’s park next Wednesday.
