Clearwell Mobility - Walking Football

Clearwell Mobility, the South East’s largest Motability-accredited mobility dealer, and Brighton & Hove Walking Football Club have hosted the third Clearwell Cup, promoting walking football as a sport and encouraging more people to stay active for longer.

Held at Brighton’s Longhill Sports Centre, the walking football tournament was open to all clubs across the UK and this year attracted teams from North Wales, London and Canterbury, as well as across Sussex.

The mobility retailer has been sponsoring Brighton & Hove Walking Football club since 2015 and the cup since 2017, with Clearwell Mobility’s Managing Director Duncan Gillett highlighting how important the sport is for those taking part.

“It is a great pleasure to continue to sponsor the Clearwell Cup and Brighton & Hove Walking Football Club,” he said.

“It was fantastic to see twelve teams playing this year and I am sure the sport, and its following, will continue to grow. Staying active as you get older is a great way to keep fit and be part of a like-minded community. I’m looking forward to seeing more teams compete next year!”

This year’s winners included Worthing Seniors, Brighton Dolphins, Preston Park and Newhaven.

Chairman of the Brighton & Hove Walking Football Club, Jobe Berrington, added: “The Clearwell Cup is fast becoming the tournament of the year and it’s been fantastic to see the event grow year-on-year. The tournament was played in good spirit, with some excellent football on show and I encourage people to get in touch with the club if they’d like to give it a go.”

Recently, Clearwell Mobility took the decision to implement a number of changes across its 12 stores and its fleet of vehicles in its bid to reduce its carbon footprint and environmental impact, including introducing a 5p charge on its plastic bags.
