A walking football club is coming to Tolworth to encourage fitness and health in men over 40 who are out of practice or worried about the risk of injury.

Walking football is designed to reduce the risk of injury and make it easier for older players with different abilities to play.

Walking Football Kingston sessions will be led by the semi professional footballer Brendan Murphy McVey, who played for Chelsea Youth Club.

Howard Conder, 72, from King Charles road in Surbiton, founded Walking Football Kingston because his nearest club was in Walton-on-Thames.

Mr Conder said: “To play for an FA league in your fifties, sixties, seventies is quite an achievement, but it has its benefits health-wise and mental-wise”

Sessions will take place every Wednesday from September 5 at Goals in Tolworth for £5.
