A new walking football team is starting in Cleator Moor soon. The walking football variant is aimed at those that lack mobility, or for other reasons, are not able to play traditional football.
The sport came to wider public attention in July 2014, when Barclays Bank aired a television advertisement featuring walking football to promote their services.
Organiser Alan Irwin said: "If interested, or you know someone who would be, you can register an interest. The league in Cumbria has been expanding and we are working with support from the Cumberland FA and local clubs."
The new unisex Cleator Moor walking football team will be for ages 50+.
