Walking Footballers Remember Bob Davidson

Newcastle United Foundation’s Walking Footballers organised a memorial tournament in memory of much loved participant Robert Davidson, Bob, who recently passed away.
The memorial tournament was held at Foxhunters, with Whitley Bay FC donating the pitch hire, and teams from across the Walking Football community were invited to attend.  The team from Blue Flames won the trophy, which was presented by Bob’s family.
Bob started attending the Foundation’s Waking Football sessions in 2015 and soon became a regular, often volunteering to referee the matches.
A well known referee in the local football scene, Bob was hugely popuar within the walking football groups and was well known for showing his strict side on the pitch but having the most brilliant rapport with staff and participants after the final whistle.
Bob refereed at the Foundation’s Walking Football demonstration at a Whitley Bay FC game last season, which was a highlight for the whole group.
The memorial tournament was held at Foxhunters, with Whitley Bay FC donating the pitch hire, and teams from across the Walking Football community were invited to attend.  The team from Blue Flames won the trophy, which was presented by Bob’s family.
Sophie Pattison, from Newcastle United Foundation, said: “’Bob Davidson was the heart of our walking football sessions, as he had been with us from the very start. During every session he made sure everyone had a laugh and enjoyed themselves. He loved to help others and did a lot of volunteer work throughout the North East. Bob has definitely left his stamp and will be a massive miss, especially in the Walking Football community.’
