Welcome to the website for Sand City Strollers, an amateur 7-a-side football team that play at Penwortham Leisure Centre on a Thursday evening.
Thursday 22nd August - new season - time to be determined
Awaiting new season fixtures
Thursday 15th August
Sand City Strollers  2 - 0  Redstar Fulwood
Thursday night action on a balmy summer's evening
It's about spending 40 minutes on a Thursday evening knocking and chasing a football around a pitch with 6 other people trying to do exactly the same thing - and working with you - and you encounter 7 other players who also have the same aim, but they're not working with you in any capacity.
If you love the beautiful game then you (pretty much) know exactly what to expect.
Find directions to Penwortham Leisure Centre plus website and telephone contact details.
Packed defence to thwart our attack
View from behind the nets
Keen and committed defending
Last season we finished in sixth position, see the table below for the final overall position.
We were quite indifferent for a lot of last season and our only crumb of comfort was that we did pick up a good number of points in out last 3 or 4 games (thank goodness). Let's hope we continue this form next season (else I'm getting my kit out!).
Unathletico Madrid and IKFC were promoted to the Championship (incidentally, Man Dem, who topped Division 1 last season, did the same in the Championship this season and so move in to the Premiership).
Last season I asked that we ended up with a bigger gap between Redstar Fulwood and ourselves, I wanted more places and points between us, with us above them. Of those 3 demands (places, points, position) we got 2 out of 3, the target we failed to hit was creating a bigger gap in our relative positions, they were still placed immediately below us (a bit like gum sticking to your shoe).
Aim this season - top half finish. No excuses.
Supportive - Stronger Together - United
From time to time we are on the look out for new and emerging talent. If you are quite regularly at a bit of a loose end on a Thursday evening, know how to kick a ball and realise that we change sides at half time, then it sounds like you could be just the sort of fellow we'd like to meet.
Why not use the Contact page to send me an email and let's see what we can do. Hope to hear from you soon.
