Welcome to Eastwood Falcons Walking Football Club​​...

We’re here for players over 50 who don’t see age as a barrier to enjoying

the beautiful game. We welcome walking football players from all over Southend,

Leigh, Rayleigh, Westcliff and beyond.

 

We began as a small group in 2015. Several founding players had links

to the Eastwood Falcons of  the 1970s and resurrected the name when

EFWFC was formalised in 2016. We exist to:

- Enjoy our football (and the banter)

- Improve and maintain fitness

- Meet people with similar interests

- Offer competitive opportunities if desired

 

Training is year-round and open to anyone who enjoys a kick-about regardless of skill level. Our over-50s, 60s,  65s and 70s men’s teams play in the Essex Walking Football League and the Walking Football National Cup with selection at the discretion of the team managers.

 

Join us. For the love of the game.​
