GMWFL Restart Update. 2020 Autumn Season in jeopardy.

The Greater Manchester Walking Football League (GMWFL) has sent an email to all clubs regarding the restart of the league for the 2020 Autumn season which is due to start in September. The text of the email is below.

The Heywood Sports Village are running a phased return programme of all activities and at the moment the 3G facility still isn’t open for competitive walking football. We feel that any form of a league restart in September is now highly unlikely and hopefully we will have more news in the next few weeks. The current restrictions in the Greater Manchester and East Lancashire areas haven’t helped matters either.

There is a meeting of League Officers on 9th September and we are still hopeful of running some sort of league competitions for all age categories starting in October.
