Group of the Week


   Here are the winners of the first ever national u3a Walking Football Tournament……. Yes you guessed it Bu3a Red Team. Played four games won three and drawn one. Keeping Bu3a in the forefront.
It was blinking hot but we managed to play some decent stuff. And congratulations to the Balsall Common and Rotherham u3a teams who made a competition out of it. Well done everyone and a special mention to John MacKinnon who organised the whole Tournament. Went without a hitch. Brilliant.
