We are keen to start a Football Group to share interests in 'The Beautiful Game'.

This could include anything about football in any country and perhaps also exchange information on the Portugal leagues, matches and performances. We might even get a few 'Expat Friendlies' going. Another example is there is a very successful Walking Football league in Algarve but as far as I know, this is not available in other regions.

So whether you are a player or just a keen fan, please let me know if you are interested and I'll set up the group and get everybody introduced.

Gerry, while holidaying in Vila Nova de Milfontes earlier this year, I did my utmost to introduce the idea to the local club which, to my eye, was perfect for Walking Football. The artificial pitch was completely unused during the week and there were plenty of ex-footballers in the town doing not very much at all really.

Frustratingly, I could not get the club motivated and after the Coronavirus lockdown began, that was that. 

Would love to try this again the next time we visit the north for our property search.

I help with the very successful East Algarve Walking Football club, and we’ve recently (before the lockdown) started vets full football as well. We’re always up for a friendly, or could even give you some advice on starting a walking football club. Check out https://walkingfootballalgarve.com/ for more details

I’m up for joining the group as the SC Olhanense (and West Brom) correspondent.
