CAT Application by Monifieth Athletic

Monifieth Athletic FC have been actively investigating how to improve the facilities at Riverview Pitches and fundraising for this purpose.

As part of this work, the Club has made a Community Asset Transfer request to Angus Council to extend our lease on the pitches to 99 years and also to purchase the current pavilion building. I am delighted to say our initial request has been accepted by Angus Council as a valid CAT application and we now progress to the next stage We have not been granted the Asset Transfer.

The next stage includes a public consultation period starting today and ending on 7th February 2018, and there will be notices at the pitches shortly in this regard. If you would like to view the application in full and comment to the Council , this will direct you to the correct website:

Any support or other comments are welcome and should be directed to

Although this is only the first step, it is exciting opportunity to provide a lasting and sustainable community facility providing sporting opportunities for the growing population of Monifieth and the surrounding area, building on the work done by the Club’s volunteers, committee members and supporters over many years.

Walking Football for ages 50 +

Loads of things have slowed down over recent years, like me. The latest addition to the scene is football. Or rather low-impact football, walking football.

What is walking football?
In essence, football without running that more closely resembles the five-a-side than 11-a-side game. It was invented to inspire men over 50 to get more exercise and counter social isolation, and now thousands are rediscovering the joys of football by playing it at a more leisurely pace. We cheat as there is the odd under 50 who gets to play. We currently have a small group who seem to subscribe to the thought below:

Football is in our blood, and we can still do it, sort of.

The rules
There may be 52 rules listed on the WFU’s national tournament website, but the only one that can be agreed on is that one foot must remain on the ground at all times. “If it looks like running,” notes the WFU, “it probably is. Whistle.” Nevertheless, the rule is frequently broken when the players get excited and break into a light jog, the penalty for which is a free kick to the other team. We go with the flow at MAFC.

The areas of dispute
There are many. Some clubs rule the ball should not be kicked above head height, while others have no limit. Should free kicks be direct or indirect? Back passes: in some clubs, the goalkeeper is allowed to handle the ball if it is passed by a defender. For some teams, players are allowed only three touches before they have to pass, while others have no limit. Most clubs have a minimal contact rule, but some say there should be none at all. We don’t mind contact if it’s fair!

The big players
Walking football has won the support of professionals including Harry Kane, Geoff Hurst, Alan Shearer and Fabrice Muamba, so if it is good enough for them, you may just be good enough for it.

Miller Homes supports grassroots football with Monifieth Athletic sponsorship

Talented young footballers at Monifieth Athletic FC have received a welcome boost from Miller Homes, as the leading housebuilder announces sponsorship of the team for a second year running.

Angus-based Monifieth Athletic FC is a youth football club with teams competing in age groups from under 9’s to under 19’s. The club also runs a coaching school for young primary school children, and is in the midst of setting up Monifieth Athletic FC Soccer School for children aged 9 to 12.

Miller Homes first sponsored the team in 2016 to coincide with the opening of its new show home at the Ashludie Grange development in Monifieth. This year, Miller Homes will support the 2005 team who are transitioning from a 7 a-side to 11 a-side team. Read More
