Manchester Walking Football Over 65 March 2018
The Manchester Walking Football Over 65 March 2018 session saw twenty one games played with fifteen 0-0 draws and only seven goals scored. Only six games had winning margins, with five games finishing 1-0 and the biggest score of the day a 2-0 victory by Preston North End Senior Whites over Wakefield Wanderers.
After two league sessions, Rochdale AFC Strollers have a nine point lead over second placed Preston North End Senior Whites. This looks to be insurmountable as they are the only team scoring with any frequency. Of the seven goals on the day, the Strollers scored four.
Hopefully, with a change of format in April and May, where the game duration will be twenty minutes, we will see a few more goals. Only the Strollers and third placed Vintage Relics have no losses recorded, with neither side conceding any goals from the first twelve matches. Unlike the Strollers the Relics couldn’t even buy a goal and had six 0-0 draws.
Rochdale Striders are in fourth spot with five 0-0 draws and a 1-0 loss to their Rochdale comrades, the Strollers. A point behind lie fifth placed Wakefield Wanders on ten points. AFC Blackpool Senior Seasiders are on the same points but in sixth place due to an inferior goal difference of one.
Lying bottom are Tameside Striders, two points behind the Seasiders. Five 0-0 draws and a single 1-0 loss to the Blackpool team was a huge improvement on their February results, where they had three 0-0 draws and three defeats, conceding five goals.
