Chelsea teams walking back to happiness after lockdown

Ellie Lock, health and wellbeing project officer, added: ‘It’s always great to see our walking football teams in action. Both teams played brilliantly, and everyone had a great time.

‘It was really topped off by watching the women’s match together after our match, allowing the players to have a chat and socialise. After all, this is one of the main reasons we deliver our walking football sessions, to reduce social isolation and build friendships and we are very proud to be able to deliver this for the groups.’

Sheila Richards, Chelsea FC walking footballer and organiser said: ‘It was a fabulous day! A good time was had by all, the games were played in good spirit and we just wanted to show our appreciation for all the effort and time that you afforded to us.”
