EFL Day of Action off to a Flyer!

Walking football team welcomed to Poolfoot Farm to meet first-team squad

19 March 2019

Fleetwood Town’s first team squad met members of the Fleetwood Town Flyers walking football team at Poolfoot Farm on Tuesday morning.

The event was held as part of the EFL’s Day of Action, a day dedicated to highlighting the great work done in Community Trust’s across the 72 EFL clubs.

The Flyers had their breakfast with Joey Barton’s team and first team staff, talking tactics and much more before posing for pictures at the club’s training ground.

Club captain Craig Morgan said: “Since I’ve been here we’ve continued to do lots of work within the community, and we know it’s a vital part of our football club.

“We’ve enjoyed meeting the Flyers this morning and chatting football – one of their players said we don’t pass it enough so I’ll be passing that onto the gaffer!”

Flyers player Richard Almond added: “We’d like to thank the club and the Community Trust for inviting our team down today to meet the players. It’s been fantastic.

“The walking football team is growing from strength to strength. We have over 90 members for the Flyers, with four different sessions running every week, which has benefited our players both physically, mentally and socially.”
