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.​

Rob's run honours family and departed friends...

(by David Holborn)

Club Chairman Rob successfully completed the Race for Life in aid of Cancer Research recently, raising the  fantastic sum of £600 which with Gift Aid added totalled £731.25. A huge thank you to all of you who contributed to Rob’s effort.

Rob had a very touching message on his shirt as a tribute to our sadly departed friends. I did say to Rob that he would have trouble completing this task being a stranger to running.and it does rather seem from photographic evidence that in an actual running event, he still appears to have two feet on the floor showing his dedication to maintaining Walking Football standards.

As I have said before, Rob devotes a huge amount of time to our Club and we are grateful to those who donated to show gratitude for his efforts and to this very worthy cause.

Over 70s make lively start

Both Over 70s squads did well on the opening day of the EWFL season.

Yellows: 

Falcons 2 (Fleetwood, Smith), Wakering 3

Falcons 3 (Wood, Holborn, Smith), Billericay 0

Falcons 1 (Smith), Southend 0

Fred Thickbroom stepped down as manager of the Yellows marking the occasion by getting sent off for running in the last minute .

Blues: 

Falcons 1 (Hughes), Paringdon 1

Falcons 0, Orient White 0

Falcons 3 (Pino 2, Evison), Little Oakley 1

The Paringdon game was a cagey affair with Mark Hughes securing a share of the spoils. The 0-0 with Orient was a hard-fought match which could have gone either way. In the 3rd fixture we let our hair down to beat Little Oakley 3.1 with the Italian stallion Pino getting 2 and Rob Evison the other; all good team goals to complete a set of pleasing results. Detailed report here.
