ALGARVE WALKING FOOTBALL CUP 2018

32 Teams, 200+ players, one congested pitch!
Brown’s Players. Note: The location is just a figment of the author’s imagination…

Brown’s Sports & Leisure Club in Vilamoura hosted the Algarve Walking Football Cup in October 2018. Thirty two teams took part, sixteen in both the over 50’s and over 60’s categories. Brown’s had three teams; Brown’s 1 were entered in the over 60’s  category, Brown’s 2 & 3 were entered in the over 50’s.

Brown’s 1 take on Ormskirk North in the Saturday knockout stage of the over 60’s category. Managed by the mighty Ron, they won a penalty shoot out courtesy of some fine shots, but also three saves from “H”‘.

Manager, captain and all round good guy Rodders et al show off their prowess in a hard fought group game against Sáo Bras. Apologies for poor sound quality due to wind noise.

World Cup Winner 2018

Apologies to any non football fans reading this, but I wanted to mark an occasion because of three key events;

  • England scored six goals in a world cup match for the first time
  • Harry Kane became only the third England player to score a hat-trick at a World Cup!
  • Our friend’s daughter led the England and Panama teams out at the World Cup,

My friend Ravi entered his daughter Alysia into a competition run by KIA. There was a a total of 64 prizes to lead a team out in the 2018 World Cup in Russia spread throughout the world. They were amazed when Alysia actually won a place and she got the England/Panama gig!

Members of Brown’s Walking Football team (and WAG’s) were there (in Brown’s restaurant) to mark the event.
