Welcome To The 27th Member League
The Kent FA Walking Football League is in its second season, with 34 teams taking part. The competitions available through the WFLA help expand this offering and add to the walking football pathway. Also, I hope that national competitions like these will increase the popularity of the sport and ensure more sessions around the UK are using the FA laws of the game.

WFLA Announce Three New Appointments

WFLA Announce Two New Appointments
The Walking Football Leagues Alliance are delighted to announce the appointment of two new members to their Management Committee. They are two of the most respected members of the walking football community and bring with them a wealth of experience regarding both club and league organisation. Mick Geraghty of the Middlesex FA WFL and Colin Strong of the Birmingham County WFL will put this experience, drive and passion to the fore as they help the Walking Football Leagues Alliance enhance both its reputation and the playing experiences for all members of the walking football community.
The WFLA would like to place on record their thanks to Hedley Austin who has resigned as Chairman of the organisation. Hedley has recognised that it is difficult for him to commit sufficient time to the role and will concentrate his efforts on walking football matters closer to home.
Hedley has offered good advice to the other committee members during his tenure which has enabled the WFLA to develop and grow. Following the recent successful events at Redditch the WFLA faces exciting times and is actively seeking new members for the committee and there will be more news on this very soon.
Until the AGM in September Tony Norton will be acting Chairman. The whole of the WFLA would like to wish Hedley all the best with his future ventures and look forward to maintaining contact with him as a representative for the walking football leagues operating in Wales.
