Village Manchester, one of the leading gay football teams in the country, have announced their packed summer schedule and they are encouraging new players to come and join them!
The club, who play in both a local Manchester league and a national gay league, are holding two sessions a week during July and August to get players fit for the summer and to give new players a taste of what it is like to play for, and be part of, the club.
On Tuesday evenings, starting from 14 July, we are holding fitness sessions which alternate between Platt Fields in South Manchester and Heaton Park in North Manchester with the aim of blowing away any cobwebs and getting rid of some of those pounds gained via those summer beer garden pints! Every Thursday evening, starting from 16 July, our regular football sessions will be taking place at Albert Park in Salford.
James Toland, Chairman of Village Manchester, told Gaylife: “We have a packed summer schedule and are looking forward to getting back to action after a few weeks off. We have dedicated coaches who are organising great sessions and it will be an excellent way for everyone to get fit. We are always on the lookout for new players and I would encourage anyone who is thinking about playing football to come and join us.
“We are a very accepting club and welcome players whether they are gay, straight or bisexual. We are an inclusive club so whether you have not played football since you left school or you are just looking to get fit, then we why not come down and see what we are like. It is free to all newcomers until the end of August so there really is nothing to lose!”
