Staying involved

More and more people are looking to continue playing football into their mid-30s and beyond.

This may be to keep fit, play with friends or prove they still 'have it!'

Opportunities for players aged 35 and over are a growing area for football. Due to work, family commitments and a whole host of other constraints, players of a certain age often want a format of football that differs from the traditional 11-a-side game. This could be small-sided, a modified pitch or simply rolling substitutions.

There are also opportunities for you to get involved in FA Mars Just Play sessions which can help you get match fit before you commit to a more competitive format!

We currently have the following veterans league affiliated to Manchester County FA:

  • Tameside Football League
  • Chadderton Park Veterans League
