Moston Brook FC Over 65’s (W.F.) Div 3 Runners Up

Our Over 65’s Walking Footballers played their last session in the Greater Manchester Walking Football League Division 3 on Thursday 9th January 2020 at Heywood Sports Village Leisure Centre.

Going into the final session they were on level points with league leaders Fleetwood Town Flyers.

Moston started with a 2 – 1 victory over Rochdale Wanderers with goals from Mike Melia & Dave Kinder. In their second game disaster struck with a 0 – 3 defeat against Maccabi Old Codgers. So then came Fleetwood who having won one & drawn one came into this game gambling a draw would be good enough, so they shut up shop to earn a 0 – 0 draw. Before their final game Moston knew Fleetwood had won their final match and were therefore champions of their group so the result of the last match against Wakefield Wanderers a 0 – 0 draw only confirmed Moston as Runners Up.

The Autumn Session in the GMWFL has (4) sessions & having played Fleetwood Town Flyers (4) times Moston had the satisfaction of not losing to them winning (2) & drawing (2).

On the day Fleetwood added another (8) points to Moston’s (5) & both teams will start the Spring Session in March 2020 in Division 2.

Please see attached the photo of the team with their Runners Up trophy.
