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.​

LATEST NEWS...

Unbeaten day for Over-50s…

Our youngsters’ squad picked up 5 points from their three games on July 6. Gareth Ackery struck the winner in a 1-0 win over Orient Whites. The two other games v Billericay Reds and Chelmsford Clarets ended in draws. Details here.

Over 70s: Blues now joint-top; Hat-trick for Yellows’ Woody.

Over 70s Blues picked up 7 points from 9 in their latest matchday to go level on points with Division 1 table-toppers Little Oakley. Details here.

 

Meanwhile Yellows, fell to two narrow defeats before thrashing Billericay Whites 4-0 including a Woody hat-trick. Details here.

Barren day for Over 60s...

Our Over-60s squads struggled on the latest matchday (July 9). Yellows failed to pick up a point (details here) Blues worked hard, competed well and probably deserved more than the two goal-less draws and one defeat on the day (details here).  Probably also an unenviable first with no goals for either squad on the day.

Travel & Transfers: Falcons recommends…

If any Falcons are in need of excellent transport/transfers services then the club highly recommends 50s team-mate Darren Graham’s firm DCH Travel. DCH handles airport transfers and transport for weddings, funerals, stag-dos, sporting events and more. You can contact Darren on 07477 505889 or dchtravelltd@gmail.com

Over 65s: 5 more points for Blues; tough going for threadbare Yellows

Over 65s Blues picked up 5 points in their latest unbeaten matchday leaving them with everything to play for going into the final round of fixtures in September. Details here.

 

Over 65s Yellows lost 2-0 to Wakering but then managed a couple of draws in games they probably should have won – but were hampered by having only a threadbare squad of 6 . Details here.

Gary excels in Irish 50s farewell...

Gary Mathews (pictured with team-mates) bowed out with a fine showing in his last tournament representing Ireland Over-50s in early July. Ireland lost one, drew 3 and won 2 while Gary kept up his record of scoring against every England goalkeeper he has faced.

 

Gary will now move up to the national over 60s squad with a ringing endorsement from the Over-50s manager who commented: “If the weekend was to be your last with the 50s, what a great way to sign off…myself and others thought you played great – disciplined, head up, passing early and working tremendously hard for the team. Take it to 60s, they need you; teach them the way.”

Congrats Scouse.
