The St Andrews and East Neuk Community Football Club Walking Football team competed in the inaugural SFA East Region Walking Football Tournament, at Links Park, Montrose.

On a cold but sunny afternoon, 11 teams and over 100 players participated in the competition, which was based on two leagues, two semi-finals and a final.

This was only StAEN’s second competition since the team’s inception in February, but they made it to the final, knocking out East Fife in the semi-final, only to be beaten by recent Scottish Cup winners Links Park, Montrose.

Walking football is a burgeoning sport for men and women, mostly over 50 years of age.
