A team of former Sunderland AFC players will be dusting off their boots to join in with new walking football session launching, at the Beacon of Light later this week. Gary Bennett, Kieron Brady, David Corner, Maurice Hepworth, Micky Horswill, Lee Howey, Don Rankin and Martin Smith and will be taking part in the session alongside regular players. Running every Thursday from 11am at the Beacon of Light, players of all ages and abilities are welcome to take part with the focus on having fun and keeping fit.
We can't wait to kick off Walking Football at the Beacon and it’s great that so many former players are getting behind it and helping with the launch. At the Beacon of Light we want to offer something for everyone. Walking football is just one of the sessions that we’re launching aimed at helping those less agile to enjoy taking part in sport and the social benefits that go along with it.

Walking Football at the Beacon is FREE to take part in your first session with subsequent sessions costing just £2.50. No booking is required.
