Largs Walking Football Club has celebrated its first successful year at Inverclyde Sports Centre with a visit from the national chairman Gary McLaughlin.

A film crew accompanied Gary, who has been nominated for the Sunday Mail sports award for his work for the growing activity of walking football.
After joining in the seven a side games in the Weir Astroturf indoor centre with 28 members of the Largs club Gary addressed the annual meeting.
He pointed out that after two heart attacks and having seven stents walking football had been life-changing for him. It helped older people become active on a weekly basis.
"It is fantastic that our age group are back playing football. Mind you, I would question whether some of you are walking at times." he said.
He added that the organisation advocated three touch football at walking pace to avoid tackling and physical contact.
Drew Cochrane and Dougie Bratt were re-elected as chairman and treasurer with KA Leisure coach Craig Hamilton as secretary.
Drew commented that walking football had been a phenomenal success with more than 40 registered members and none of the Monday and Wednesday sessions had ever been cancelled. He thanked Pat Rall and Gerry Begley for their match day organisation, and Sportscotland for hosting the club.
The club has also been raising money for the Prostate Cancer charity.
