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.’ “

  • Leigh Wilby

...and for one of the originals...

Vice-chairman David Holborn presented lifetime membership to Ray Darnell (pictured) at training, honouring one of our longest-standing members and, at 80, our most mature. Ray was one of the first to join us playing walking football at Len Forge back in 2016 and has remained loyal to Eastwood Falcons ever since.

Unbeaten day out  for Over-75 debutants

Our fledgling “Over-75s” squad – including three whippersnappers (Jim, Mark, Peter) – were undefeated in a great first set of friendlies on April 16.
