People’s Cup Disability Teams Take Step Towards Regional Finals

Newcastle United Foundation, with Northumberland FA and Newcastle Development League, recently hosted the FA Peoples Cup semi-finals at Goals Newcastle.

Four teams who competed in the semi-final event: Newcastle East End Wolves, The Gateway Gladiators, Beamish, and Gateshead Special Olympics.

The overall winners of the Cup tournament were The Newcastle East End Wolves and the runners up were the Gateway Gladiators. The top two teams will go through to the reginal finals which are North, Central and South over the weekend of the 27th and 28th of February.

Reggie Dornan, Foundation Disability Football Coordinator, said “It was fantastic to see so many people getting really stuck into the competition. Well done to all four teams for their brilliant attitude and for putting in so much effort.  Congratulations to Newcastle East End Wolves and Gateway Gladiators  – we wish them the best of luck in the regional finals!”

The governing body of football in England hosted The FA People’s Cup which was formed in 2015. In its first year over 30,000 people took part in the competition which resulted in over 1,000 new teams being created.

The FA People’s cup is a free to enter knockout competition that welcomes both male, female and disability players ranging across 10 categories aged from under 14s to over 35s. The competition takes part over three rounds; Round One, Semi-finals and the Final. It is primarily a five-a-side tournament which also involves walking football which caters for disabled players by taking the fantastic sport of football and slowing it down.

 It gives people all over England the opportunity to play in their versions of the FA Cup. Small-pitch football providers, BBC Get Inspired and the FA have all joined forces to make this fantastic event happen.
