Keith Smith was selected to play for his country at the weekend.

Keith ( 3rd from left) made his England debut in goal for the Over 70's Walking Football Team against Wales at Merthyr Tydfil last Sunday (24th March).

England won both games 1- 0 and 3- 1.

Keith has been a member of Salisbury FC Walking Football, a five side footy game for over 50s.

The sport, a slower form of the regular game, launched in Salisbury in 2015.

It is part of the nationwide Football Association and the rules are exactly the same as the regular version of the game.

You're never too old to give it a go!
