It’s fun football for past players, Mothers and Others. Participants need to be over 18 years of age, and not a currently registered player. This is a great concept for people to get out and about, and be active, and everyone is most welcome to come along and enjoy a fun filled night, with a hard earned cuppa waiting afterwards.
