International & Regional Representative Players


WWF Year 6 was the age WF stepped up a level and international WF started.

The 1st IWFF World Cup was held at Leyton Orient FC on June 1st/2nd 2019 and Australians Ken Lewis and Mark Blythe were selected, admittedly on availability rather than ability, but who cares!

In the 60+ category The Aussies came 3rd/5 and won the Most Sporting Country category – Champions of the World! Ken Captained his country against Wales and Mark against Spain with Scotland’s Steve Archibald (yes really) the Spanish Captain?

In the 50s the next day the small older Aussie squad struggled coming 13th/16 Mark scoring in a 1-0 win over Portugal. At the World Cup our Ladies played a demo match for Chelsea against West Ham and won 2-0 with 2 cracking goals from Sue Thearle.




Our first England International (WFA) was Keith Harris for the 70+ playing in the rain at Guernsey on Friday 1 November in a 2-1 win.

The next day (2.11.19) six of our ladies played in the first ever Women’s IWFF International Match for England v Wales at Merthyr Tydfil. Vice-Captain Carolyn Kelly led the 50s to a 3-1 win alongside Helen Attwell, Sharon Meek and Laura Strong, Laura and Sharon scoring. Stepping in due to Sue Thearle’s injury, Mark Blythe was our first ever England Manager, a 100% record! In the 40s Dawn Richards played alongside Helen Stevens who scored in a convincing 7-1 win.

Sadly the Corona Virus postponed the Ladies playing in Sweden and the World Cup in Majorca and Bill Oldham making his debut for England 75s, hopefully the games will be reorganised soon.
