Newcastle United Legend Visits Foundation Walking Football

Legendary Newcastle United captain, and Foundation Patron, Bob Moncur gave our Walking Football players a treat as he visited a Newcastle United Foundation session at Hadrian Leisure Centre in Whitely Bay.

Coming along to our weekly walking football session, Bob held an informal question and answer session with the group, before spending some time watching as players took part in their regular walking football games.

He took questions from attendants about his time at Newcastle United, his thoughts on the current state of the game, and his famous move to arch rivals Sunderland.

Speaking at the session Bob said: ‘I really enjoyed my trip down to Whitley Bay, it was nice to meet people who remembered my era.  I was delighted to see so many people taking part in the Walking Football programme and I think the Foundation is doing a fantastic job.  With this said I don’t think Walking Football is for me, bearing in mind you can’t tackle!’

Laura Wilson, Community Projects Coordinator at the Foundation added: ‘We are so grateful to have Bob’s support – we really appreciate him taking the time to come and meet and talk with our Walking footballers.’

Our Walking Football sessions are designed to help inspire older players back into exercise. The game is ideal for anyone who has been inactive for a while, wants to improve their fitness or who are coming back from an injury.
