Badenoch met club officials, players and parents and sampled the family atmosphere which Walden prides itself on.

Players from under-six to under-16s were in action, with many senior players also on hand to assist the coaches.

The club was proud to show off its community spirit and full range of ages it caters for, with Badenoch enjoying seeing so many young players being active and enjoying participating whatever the level.

Saffron Walden has been serving the community for over 50 years and continues to grow and provide a fun and warm welcome to anyone keen to join in.
