EASTLEIGH Walking Football Club's James Trant has netted his first international goal.

He was among the scorers for England over-60s walking football team when they overcame Gibraltar 11-0 in a match held on the British overseas territory last weekend.

The match, designed to promote local interest in walking football, was played in pleasant 20C sunshine.

After playing a warm-up game against an English expat side at nearby San Pedro on the Spanish mainland, and winning 10-4, the main event took place in front of a 200-plus crowd at Gibraltar's Victoria Stadium.

The first half was a competitive affair but, as the game wore on, England began to dominate and the goals started to flow.

Alan Davies was named man-of-the-match after scoring four goals, Graham Collier weighed with a brace and the rest were shared between skipper Spencer Pratten, Peter Stacey, Trant, Tony Jones and Vic Vaines.

Gibraltar are new to walking football whereas Trant's home club Eastleigh are in their fifth year - and, of course, England have a much greater pool of players to draw on than their southern European counterparts.

Coming up for 63-year-old Trant is England's next game against Wales on March 3.
