Bury Relics over 70’s have won the inaugural Walking Football League Alliance (WFLA) Champions Cup.
The Competition was open to the top two teams from all 16 Walking Football Leagues that are affiliated to the WFLA
The Relics beat Rochdale Strollers 3 – 1 in the final held at Leek Town Football Club on 11th June 2022.
Two goals from ‘red boots’ John W, and a penalty from JoMo securing the win.
Due to unavailability, holidays, injuries, and other commitments The Relics were down to a bare six players, Keiran, Pat, Tex, Jerry, JoMo, and John W, with Jerry also not feeling 100% on the day.
As boss Keiran put it, “All the guys had the Relics positive, never say die, attitude.
Led by Keith S the lads gave everything and on the day were the better team as acknowledged by our opponents”.
A great achievement for all the players taking part and one for the history books for the Relics.
