Preparing for the new Season they will have a new manager and coach after the resignations of Clive Boughton and Douglas. Viñuela also have a very good Ladies team led by Sheila Clifford, ex Chelsea Ladies and England Ladies with several mini tournament successes to their name. 

 

Taking part in the new season League Cup in a first for walking football in the South of Spain when they will go "into the hat" with the men’s teams.

WALKING FOOTBALL SPAIN CALAHONDA

WFS Calahonda are one of the new teams on the "block" again formed with the devolvement of WFS and also with a small membership. 

 

They play out of the Finca Naundrup in Calahonda and have yet to take part in a competitive competition. After much deliberation they have decided to join the new B League in the new season. The small membership and average age of the players being well over 65 they feel the B League for teams with older players and players just not good enough for their A team will provide them with a reasonable chance of success. 

 

Calahonda are unique in that they can field a full team of Over 70`s and have the oldest player in 81 year old Eberhard Geller, who still turns out at sessions and the occasional friendly match.

 

Despite their low numbers led by Player/Manager Scott Carmichael they will be out to prove they are "not over the hill".

WALKING FOOTBALL CDS WALKING DEAD

WFCDS Walking Dead, founded in 2016 they are a bit of a mystery club only leaking information occasionally. 

 

Founded by Martin Tigue they have threatened to challenge the "favourites" but have been thwarted by covid and many of their players working abroad, making it difficult to field a settled team. They have been recruiting though and are confident they can provide two strong teams to challenge for the A and B Leagues.

 

Based at the Finca Naundrup and rarely venturing out they did recently make a successful visit to play Nerja.

 

Another club who have raised thousands of euros for charities including Prostrate Cancer Research and this year their chosen charity is Motor Neurone Disease.

 

Those wondering from where they took their name “The Walking Dead” it can be revealed that when he saw the players for the first time, manager Martin Tigue’s impression of the squad .... The Walking Dead !!
