New season for Accrington Stanley Disability FC

A new season has started in the Lancashire FA Ability Counts League and we are looking for players that would be interested in representing Accrington Stanley!

The teams plays once a month against other teams from all around the northwest. The league allows those that struggle in mainstream football to be part of a competitive football environment that is safe and fun!

The Stanley team is made up of keen footballers that have been attending our adult disability sessions that are held weekly at Hyndburn Leisure centre. We encourage anyone that enjoys football to come to these sessions and enjoy football not matter their disability.

Lee Walsh, Head of Sport, commented, ‘the league allows opportunity for people with a variety of additional needs to play football in a suitable and safe environment. It’s an chance to proudly present Accrington Stanley. Last season was a lot of fun and we can wait to get started again!’

We have a fixture on Saturday 21st September at 9am. We will provide transport from Hyndburn Leisure Centre leaving at 8am promptly and returning after the match.

If you or someone you know would like to join our disability football team please contact lee.walsh@stanleytrust.co.uk or call 01254 304071.
