FA People’s Cup Comes To The Newcastle

Last weekend, Newcastle United Foundation held the first regional FA People’s Cup festival event at Newcastle East End Football Club. Three clubs participated on the day, Blyth Valley Disabled Forum, Newcastle East End and Hexham Gateway in the Community.

The FA People’s Disability cup was specifically for lower ability teams, and came from our Newcastle Disability Development league, Band 3.

BBC Get Inspired has teamed up with the Football Association and the country’s leading small-sided football providers to launch the FA People’s Cup, a free knockout competition which will give up to 14,000 teams and more than 100,000 players the chance to play in their version of the FA Cup.

The day was a huge success and was not just about winning, but also fair play and Sportsmanship.

The organising committee on the day decided the trophy should go to Hexham Gateway in the Community for their overall attitude to the other teams. They played with smiles on their faces all day, even encouraging the other teams.

 he players commented that it was genuinely about taking part in the festival not just the winning.

Their team is only in existence for 6 months and is a Product one of Newcastle United Foundation’s FA DFDF project.

 A lot of praise goes to our coaches Michael Woods and Martin Herdman for all their hard work over the last 6 months with the players.

 Project Coordinator from Gateway in the Community, Julia Ferguson, commented:

The journey the lads have undertaken from our first footie sessions in the park to attending the sessions funded by Newcastle United Foundation has been incredible.

 “They have started to play competitive football in the Newcastle Development League and gained sponsorship for their team strips and playing in their first ever tournament has been immense. We cannot thank the Foundation enough!!”

Reggie Dornan, Disability Football Coordinator said:

“It was a great turnout, and could not have done it without the help from Northumberland FA and the hosts, Newcastle End FC.”
