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.

Mark Hughes has finished top of the Golden Boot table in a hotly contested goal chase which saw just one goal separating the top 3. Assuming Mark passes drug and hormone tests, his Golden Boot will be confirmed at the end of season awards.
Over 60s: League Cup agony for Yellows...
Over-60s Yellows suffered an agonising 0-1 League Cup final defeat to Wakering after conceding in the final 30 seconds. Falcons had won their quarter final vs Southend 2-0 with goals from Barry Thornton and Gary Bell. In the quarter-final, a Gareth Ackery goal secured a 1-1 draw with Billericay before a penalty shoot-out triumph. Well played and bad luck lads. Report here.
