Disability Teams Compete To Represent Foundation In FA People’s Cup
Teams from across Newcastle United Foundation’s Disability Programme are set to compete for the ultimate accolade of representing the region in this year’s FA People’s Cup.
Newcastle Disability Development League and the Northumberland FA is holding a day of qualification matches to determine who represents the North East in the Disability football group.
The qualification day will take place on Saturday 30th January at 10 am at Goals, Gosforth with the winner going on to compete in the national competition.
The FA People’s Cup is a 5-a-side competition which is run in partnership with BBC Get Inspired. It’s free to enter and welcomes male, female and disability players across ten categories – ranging from U14s through to veterans (over-35s).
The FA People’s Cup was launched in 2015 and in its first year over 30,000 people took part in the competition which resulted in over 1,000 new teams being created.
Reggie Dornan, Disability Football Project Coordinator, said: “This is a great opportunity for our teams to get involved in a national initiative where, if they win, they could be showing off their skills to a huge audience. I’d like to wish all of our teams the very best of luck – it should be a fantastic day!”
