Havant and Waterlooville FC Walking Football hold trials for all players aged 50-plus three times a week every week (except Bank Holidays)! Monday mornings at 11.00am at South Downs College, Monday evenings at 7.30pm at Warblington School, and Thursday mornings at 11.00am back at South Downs College again. For just £3.00 per session, you too could don the famous Hawks’ jersey. Those that sign on with the Many Shades following the trial (where you trial us, not the other way round) will partake in loads of banter, debate about running and quality of refereeing, as well as drinking buckets of tea and coffee and eating more biscuits and cakes (after the daytime sessions) than your doctor would give blessing to.
Away from the training ground and bar, the Many Shades partake in a series of competitions including friendly matches, Festivals, and Charity Tournaments. The team has also taken part in The FA People’s Cup, reaching the semi-finals in 2016.
Want to book onto the open trial or have any other questions then contact the following: Shaun Gale or Ross Betteridge at Hawks in the Community on 02392 787822.
