Name + age:
Ian Charlesworth (Charlie) - 51 Years old.
Where do you live ie Tala:
Huddersfield, West Yorkshire
Highest level played at + for who:
Other than Pafos United and being top scorer in last year's
Mini League 1!! Hahaha. I clearly didn't play - and Only
managedto warm the bench regularly for Holywell Green
United as a youth. I played football a lot socially whilst
serving in RAF & also presented Episkopi Garrison at 2nd
Team Level Hockey (Goalkeeper). I gave up on playing
and managed over 5 years as a RAF FA Referee. My claim
to fame was officiating James Major (John Major's son) a
few occasions and runningthe line for the Gloucestershire
ATC Cup Final one year.
Huddersfield Town, Havant & Waterlooville (NLS), Pafos
FC& Liverpool. I was a season ticket holder at Havant for
17 years and now a season ticket holder at Pafos for the
last 2years, but not seen many matches for my money!
1 match this season so far because of some virus
Ray Clemence (Idol RIP) Emlyn Hughes (RIP), Paul

Why Pafos Utd walking football?
I wanted to bring Walking Football to Cyprus, but Malcolm
beat meto it. Thanks to Dave Hatton my next door
neighbour at the time i came along tothe first session and
was hooked. I love footy and thought how hard can it be
when you're walking (like many). Its a help with exercise
and love the banter, rivalries we createand the massive
success we've all created.
For PUWFC to thrive, for Walking Football to grow in
Cyprus andcreate more teams for us to play competitively
against, perhaps a National League etc..For this pandemic
to be eased and everyonehave their vaccinations as quickly
as possible and looking forward to catching up with my twin
(Alright fella, here's waving at ya) :)
