  • A draw for San Pedro against the Gibraltar first team in the final match was enough for Walking Football Spain to overturn last year's disaster and win the tournament

Walking Football Spain (WFS) made the journey to Gibraltar last Friday to play Walking Football Gibraltar in the two sides' annual tournament.

In the final match, San Pedro (WFS) took on the Gibraltar first team and a 1-1 draw was enough for Walking Football Spain to overturn last year's disaster and win the tournament.

This result saw Walking Football Spain's two teams unbeaten in the four games overall.

This is no mean feat, against a Gibraltar squad who play England in a full International in Gibraltar on 9 February and will be participating in the Walking Football World Cup in Paris in mid-May.

The Gibraltar players generously contributed to the WFS's fundraiser for Marbella girl Sarah Almagro who needs prostheses after losing her hands and feet to sepsis.
