Weston AFC’s walking football team are looking to win a unique treble when they enter the Walking Football Association South West championships next month at The Optima Stadium.

Player-Manager Lach Geddes has entered a team in each of the three age groups, over-50, over-60 and over-65.

The Seagulls are current holders of the over-50 title after beating Plymouth Argyle in the final two years ago.

Geddes has this year entered teams from two other older age groups, with Arie Van Vliet the manager of the over-60s and custodian John Hembrow the over-65s manager.

“It would be great to win the treble and we have a great chance of doing that as we have a great set-up here at Weston, but we are all just grateful to be playing again,” said Geddes.
