The  Sessions of the walking football have now been suspended until further notice. the directive from the Government means that we are unlikely to re commence before the 15 April at the earliest. Further updates will be put on the website, our facebook page and our members forum HEJA.

Our mini league due to be completed at the end of march ahs now been deferred until further notice. Whatever happens we have decided that the next  mini league will start on the last FRIDAY in June.

We are still hoping that our friendly matches against a team from Scotland will go ahead but again we have to be guided by events.

A reminder that players annual subscription is now due. Most players have already paid but members still to pay should speak to Paul Fraser or secretary Charlie.

Our new leisure shirts have now arrived. We are happy with the results and anyone wishing to purchase a shirt should speak to Billy Smith our kit co ordinator. We also have new pennants which we hope to swap with teams coming over to the island to play matches.
The AGM in March agreed that new players once they have been accepted by the management Committee will need to make a payment of 25 euros. This will entitle them to a training top t  shirt. There will be a session charge of 5 euros.

The session charge applies to all members. Existing members will now be asked to pay a 10 euro annual membership fee. The amount to be reviewed each year at the AGM.

At the AGM the majority of last years committee was re elected. We welcome new Treasurer Paul Frazier, Kit Co ordinator Billy Smith, referee co ordinator David Morris and Entertainment  co ordinator Sandy Quinnell.

The name of the group has now been amended to Pafos United Walking Football Cyprus ie PUWFC

We are pleased that  team from Scotland will be coming to play us in April / May details on the flyer below.

HOT NEWS/UPDATE - September 2019

 

Pafos United Walking Football is going from strength to strength and as such we have decided to try and add some competitive spirit into things. The main reason for this is that there are still no other teams in Cyprus who have come forward to challenge us to any matches. We are happy to help by the way if anyone wants to start a team locally or anywhere else on the island of course.

 

So how are we adding some competitive spirit i hear you ask? Well, we are about to commence our Mini League 1 that is sponsored by our own main sponsor NFSEurope.com and will feature 4 teams with 10 players (from Pafos Utd) in each squad. On the last Saturday of each month each team will play 2 matches (each match is 40 mins, 20 mins each way) and there will be points up for grabs! 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw with an added bonus point for a team scoring 5 goals or more in a match! The teams will be called: Peyia Forest, Tala Park Rangers, Mesogi County & Coral Bay Rovers and We have nominated our captains: Neil Bushe (Peyia Forest), Tony Baxter (TPR), Poul Mansfeld (Mesogi County) & Mick Roberts (Coral Bay Rovers).

 

Look out for our monthly results, Top scorers, and the league tables. We are playing these matches on Saturdays 26/9/19, 26/10/19, 30/11/19, 25/1/20, 29/2/20, & 28/3/20. So by the end of Mini League 1 each team will have played 12 matches.

 

All matches will be officiated by our own referees: Graham Clark, Mark Hignett & Dave Hatton. All will be keeping tabs on scorers, and any disciplinary issues as well as there will be Blue card (Sin Bin), Yellow card & Red cards used if necessary, but we do hope that this won't be the case.

 

If you want to come along and support a team, or just watch for fun, we will be playing from 8.30am on each of those Saturdays at Fair Game Sport Center, Industrial Area of Tremithousa.

 

The Favourite at the moment appears to be: Coral Bay Rovers with a strong squad highly fancied to take the first league title. Once this all ends on 28/3/20 - we are hopeful of having a BBQ, awards presentation and live band after the final matches. Then in April - we will change all the teams round, perhaps have new team names and start Mini League 2.
