Meet Our Regional Deaf And Partially Sighted Squad
Meet our Regional Deaf and Partially Sighted Team!
Thirteen youngsters have been selected to participate in our FA Regional Deaf & Partially Sighted Talent Centre.
The aim is to recruit young deaf and partially sighted players 12 to 16 years old, deemed to possess the potential to progress within the England Talent pathway. They will then be based in a Futsal based development programme designed to support such progression.
FA Regional Centre success will be measured on the number of players progressing from the Centre, into the England Emerging talent programme or beyond on a seasonal basis. Players are monitored throughout the season on a 6 week basis.
The FA has issued 8 Centre Licences throughout England and, after a competitive bidding process, this is the first time a licence has been awarded in the North East of England region.
Newcastle United Foundation’s team of 5 coaches will deliver the 26 week technical programme in partnership with our local County FA, the Northumberland FA.
Reggie Dornan, Disability Coach at Newcastle United Foundation, said: “It’s very exciting to be in a position to offer the best performers within our partially sighted and deaf teams the opportunity to get involved with the FA Regional Talent Centre. There is a really great atmosphere within the squad and it’s great to see how much the players have already progressed.”
