A Fantastic Way For The Over 50s To Get Back Into Playing Competitive Football.
At Farnham Town Football Club, our aim is to involve ourselves with all elements of the local community, helping to keep people active and involved in the game that we all love for as long as possible, which is why we teamed up with Waverley Borough Council in 2020 to launch Farnham Town Flares, Farnham’s first walking football team.
We now have a squad of over 40 members who compete in local competitions and enjoy a number of social events.
This season, the Farnham Town Flares have Over 50s, Over 60s and Multiage (one player over 70) teams competing in the Surrey FA League and Cup competitions against teams such as Chelsea, Fulham, AFC Wimbledon, Woking and the current league and cup champions, Godalming, and the Over 50s also compete in the Sunday Middlesex 50+ League.
Although walking football is aimed at people over the age of 50, the Farnham Town Flares also welcome those players who fall below this age and would like to continue playing but, for whatever reason, can no longer compete in a vets’ team.
