The Over-50's walking Active Stirling football programme kicked off on Wednesday 6 May at Forthbank Stadium with over 15 participants in attendance. 

The programme began with a group warm up followed by some small sided games throughout the 60 mins session. 

Scott Kinross, Scottish FA Football Development Officer said:

"It was great to see so many people enjoying themselves and for many it may have been the first they had kicked a ball in a long time.  With an excellent turnout today we hope that attendance figures increase in the coming weeks. 

Participant Arthur Duncan said:

"This was a great experience I never thought I would play football again at my age.

"I am really looking forward to next week's games.  The Active Stirling coaches coordinating the programme were also very positive and enthusiastic.”
