The weekly Monday night walking football sessions at Mariners Park are to return in the New Year.

The sessions which would usually have been scheduled for December 26 and January 2 will not be taking place.

Instead, the sessions will resume again on Monday, January 9.

Organisers would like to thank all of those who have attended so far, and look forward to seeing you again in 2017.

Anyone interested in taking part in the sessions, or who would like more information about them, can contact 07920 554377.

The sessions take place on the 3G facility at Mariners Park between 7pm and 8pm.

Those interested in taking up walking football are reminded that there are two weekly one-hour sessions at Mariners Park.

They are on Mondays (7pm-8pm) and Tuesdays (11am-12pm) on the 3G facility at the ground.

New players are always welcome, and can simply turn up at the time of the session to get involved.

If you are interested in taking part in the Monday sessions and would like more information, please call 07920 554377.

Meanwhile, for more information on the Tuesday sessions – which are led by South Shields player Barrie Smith – call 0191 454 7800.

A weekly walking football session for over-50s is to start next week at Mariners Park.

The one-hour sessions are planned to take place each Monday from 7pm, starting on October 17.

To begin with, there will be sessions primarily aimed at enjoyment and physical activity, but as things progress, if there is sufficient interest a league could be formed.

The sessions will take place on the brand-new 3G facility at the ground.

If you’re interested in taking part, please contact Bob Scott on 07920 554377.
