Once again, as was expected, the CWF League October 2016 session was well organised and generally played in the right spirit. This was all down to the sterling work of the Cheshire Walking Football Group secretary George Brady and Adam Doyle of the Cheshire FA. The 2 referees also played their part and have our thanks for their excellent officiating.
