Keynsham Walking Football members are pleased to announce that they have purchased four sets of goals with the help of a grant from the Football Foundation.

The club play at the AJN Stadium (home of Keynsham Town Football Club) and have used 5-a-side goals for many years. However, the 12ft x 6ft goals have become standard now for walking football and are used in both the Somerset and Gloucestershire leagues.

Keynsham Walking Football have entered a total of seven teams in the leagues this season in the over 50s, 60s and 70s categories so it helps to use the same standard for practice and competition.

Pictured from the left are Mike Slucutt, Chris Ashton, Mike Leach, Jim Dale and Dave Millington getting ready to use the new goals for the first time.

There are more than 150 members of Keynsham Walking Football. For further details email

The club also have an active social side, so far raising more than £30,000 for good causes.
