Unfortunately, the sessions in Sao Bras on a Tuesday have drawn to a conclusion due to the small numbers attending.
With a last hurrah, the team from Sao Bras recently played in the tournament in Vilamoura where 3 wins and a draw saw them reach the knockout rounds. A defeat on penalties in the first knockout round led to a semi-final win in the Plate competition. Unfortunately they lost in the final.
Many thanks to those who entered and tried to keep Sao Bras going to the end.
Under a clear blue sky eighteen mature players put their best feet forward as São Brás de Alportel welcomed its first ever Walking Football session for those over 50 years of age.
This is a slow version of the beautiful game with no running on or off the ball; minimal contact, no slide tackling or tackling from behind. For the newcomers it was definitely a case of self discipline as the natural reaction is to break into a jog!
Thanks to the efforts of Alex Moreira and Ian Lowe and with the support
