Tameside Striders had two teams competing in the Greater Manchester over 70s Walking Football League. The Blues had a late injury scare with Rob Rowney but Mike Brett stepped in and played well in his two games. Rob pronounced himself fit and started the first game against Salcom who were 2 points behind Blues and it was Rob who scored the only goal to give Blues 3 points. The second game against our other team (Stripes) finished as a 0-0 draw thanks to excellent goalkeeping from Mike Keiron. Blues played Corinthians next and fought out a 0-0 draw, thanks to a great performance from Terry Hayden in goal.
