Achievements so have been: We have supported a new Football Club for disabilities and mental health players, mixed teams. The Club were awarded the adult FA Charter Standard Award this year which is a massive achievement for a young club.
Sponsored and supported two players in gaining their level 1 FA coaching badge so they can join the volunteer workforce to coach the teams at the club and work in the Community.
Started an Inclusion Wildcats for girls aged 5 -11 years old this was starting to develop before the lock down. The aim is to get girls from all walks of life playing football in a safe and fun environment where they can achieve their goals.
We are always looking at partnerships with others to help develop football and sport for disabilities and mental health people.
Developing a Futsal League for players with disabilities. We would be looking at PAN disabilities.
Getting a team of players with disabilities and mental health issues into a main stream 11 a side league. We are working with Hadrian FC to get this off the ground this year.
Picture is from a Friday Night Football League which was a drop in and play league. We had some excellent feedback from the players who want to play in a mainstream league.
Please note that they were playing FNF League for three years so they have been a long journey to get where they are.
We work on a shoe string budget with some donations from friends and families to make this work. With the help of the volunteers we would not be achieving what have. So if you like what you have seen and would like to be involved give Derek a call on 07718 988806 or if you would like to attend some sessions lets us know.
A donation would help immensely with costs for facilities and equipment.
