Boost For Disabled Footballers

Newcastle United Foundation is in partnership with Northumberland FA to get more disabled adults into football.

To date 304 adults have taken part in the programme, now in its second year at Newcastle United. Players sign up to join one of 12 venues including Gateshead College, Walker Activity Dome, Coach Lane, and Blyth Sporting Club.

The Foundation also created eight new FA Level 1 coaching positions, specifically to work with disabled footballers, and affiliated 13 new teams who play every month in the new Disability Development League.  

There are 34 players at Gateshead College every Monday, many who also compete in a monthly college football tournament.

Rob Jones, head of Gateshead College ‘s Foundation learning team said

“Since the college got involved with this project, the students have looked forward to every Monday. They have picked up new skills and also made new friends along the way. We have now started to take part in the colleges monthly fixturs, which means the students can play against other teams of the same ability.”

The Foundation is delivering this programme as part of the FA’s Disability Football Development Fund, an overall £1.5m investment into the sport over the next four years across the country.

Disability football is the seventh most played team sport with currently 35 County Disability Football Leagues and more than 1500 disability football teams in England.

Nationally, The FA aims to encourage more than 30,000 new participants with a disability into football and almost 600 new disability football teams.

New players are always welcome. To get involved email reggie.dornan@nufc.co.uk
