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.​

Falcons donate to KitAid

Chairman Rob Evison recently met with Barrie Neal of the charity KitAid who came down from Chelmsford to collect sets of Falcons’  old long sleeved kits which we had accumulated since 2017. Barrie also received a donation of footballs and other equipment from The Len Forge Centre.

 

Our kits, bearing the Falcons badge, will now be worn by football lovers in another part of the world. Barrie wrote to thank the club for the donation, saying: “A super quality kit donation from Eastwood Falcons Walking Football Club - massively appreciated. Now beginning a journey to a new part of the world, where the game is loved, but is held back by a lack of access to kit and equipment”

 

“The Falcons kit donation this week follows over 1 million items of kit donated since KitAid’s formation in 1998.”

 

“Your donation of kit ensures others get to enjoy a special moment too when they get to wear your colours & Club badge, and though many miles away they will know Eastwood Falcons Walking Football Club, your generosity and commitment to 'spreading smiles for the love of the game.’ “
