Walking Football

Peterborough United Foundation were delighted to welcome Peterborough United Manager Darren Ferguson, and Assistant Manager Kieran Scarff, to our Walking Football session last night (Monday 6th November).

The Week of Action (November 6-10) highlights the impact the clubs have on their communities as a collective.

Across the week, managers and players will be out in their local areas meeting participants and getting involved in the life-changing community activities their club’s deliver through their Club Community Organisations (CCOs). Almost 48,500 appearances have been made by EFL players over the last three seasons.

As part of the EFL Week of Action, Ferguson and Scarff visited Nene Valley Community Centre to meet our large group of players and joined in with the game.

Peterborough United Foundation CEO, Gill Wignall, said: “The EFL Week of Action puts the spotlight on the work we do in the local community and it’s brilliant to receive the support of the football club. We’re very grateful to Darren and Kieran for joining in with our walking football session and we know the participants really enjoyed their evening. We’re very proud of the work we do every day and we’re looking forward to continuing that long into the future.”

Manager Darren Ferguson said quote: “It was good to come down to the session and it was actually great fun. I was speaking to a gentleman earlier on about the fact he was in his sixties and he thought his football days were over, but he comes every week and loves it. It is obviously important for exercise, but it is just as important for the social aspect of it.”
