Grimsby town sports and education trust have a connection with the Grimsby Ancient Mariners club.

The club promotes Walking football as it’s a unique sport, different to regular Association Football in many ways and is aimed at the over 50’s age group. Many tournaments are now catering exclusively for the over 60’s and over 70’s age groups.

It has very specific rules that outlaw all running and allows no contact between players. Over-head height restrictions and indirect free kicks ensure that the sport is played safely with full consideration to the participants’ age.
