We currently have 78 registered players, and around 92 who have some kind of involvement with Pafos United. Some are holiday makers that just play when they visit Cyprus, some are non-playing committee members. Our team goes from strength to strength.  We have 3 women that play, in fact Emma Baxter is nearly 39 years old and our youngest player at Pafos United, whilst Roy Blatchford who was until a recent injury was playing 3 times a week celebrated his 81st birthday on 20th September. Happy Belated birthday Roy!!

Welcome back to some old faces who have been away for the summer, Paul John, Brian Farquhar, and soon John Kelly will be back throwing himself around the goalmouth! We also look forward to welcoming back Andy Hack (74) & Jayne Hack (75) shortly.

Big Shout out to Bob Quinnell, who sadly injured his shoulder recently and has had to have MRI scans and results weren't particularly positive - he's had to withdraw from the forthcoming NFS Europe.com Mini League 1 that starts Saturday 28th September 2019.  Get well soon Bob and hope we'll see you back on the pitch very soon.

Charlie in UK, after playing with Havant & Waterlooville's "Many Shades of Grey" award winning Walking Football club. Thank you to all players but particularly Stuart Russell (Secretary) and John Morgan (Fixtures & Festivals Secretary) for all welcoming me and letting me join in with you today.

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.
