Welcome to the website for Sand City Strollers, an amateur 7-a-side football team that play each week at Penwortham Leisure Centre on a Thursday evening.

Leisure centre closes down following coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions
The present season drew to a close on Thursday 19th March, currently unclear when the next season will resume.
I'll be using this break in the season to refresh the website and to come back with an even more dynamic and eye-catching layout. In the meantime, look after yourself and take care of the that are close to you. See you soon.
Thursday 19th March at 7:45pm
Sand City Strollers   0  -  2   Underdogs FC
Thursday night action on a balmy summer's evening
Simply 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.
Packed defence to thwart our attack
View from behind the nets
Keen and committed defending
Last season we had a poor season, we finished nearer the bottom rather than the top of the table.
Disappointing when you consider we had a good top half finish the previous season and that included a series of good results at the end of the fixtures.
Last season we had a great start (won 8 - 2), then a dip in form, followed by a series of draws, another dip in form and we finished it off with a good 2 - 1 win against Expected Tolouse.
For goodness sake, even Redstar Fulwood finished above us!
(Rumour is that Redstar Fulwood are to be strengthened this season by players they have picked up from the recently disbanded Deepdale Seniors - you read it here first!)
Euxtom FC were promoted to the Championship, with Longton St Germain also going up with them.
Moving in the other direction is a name from the past - Boca Seniors - not played against them for 3 or 4 seasons.
Not sure who else is coming down, it could be that a team has either dropped out or changed their name for the coming season.
Ah well, onwards and upwards.
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.
