1066 Specials Pledge – “To be open minded and innovative on all aspects of disability football”
The Pledge Project is a way of raising awareness about the current opportunities within Disability Football and to provide further prospects for players, coaches and spectators. Sussex County FA, working in partnership with The Russell Martin Academy, Active Sussex, University of Brighton, Together Wellbeing and Albion in the Community, have invited all football clubs in the county to take part and lead the way with a Disability Football Pledge.
With this in mind our very own club 1066 Specials FC would like to make the following response to the pledges initiative going forward and their intended involvement in disability football.
“Generally we shall support and encourage all players to build their confidence, improve skills and hopefully maximise enjoyment in playing the game of football.
We shall provide regular training sessions (3 times a month) with qualified coaches, ensuring players play at the correct level to suit abilities. ENJOYMENT being the aim.
We shall continue to try and recruit new players and make the local community aware of what the football club can offer.
Our club will encourage our players to play fair and enjoy the game with the emphasis on friendships and sportsmanship.
We shall continue to enter teams and support the Sussex disability league tournaments for the forthcoming season. We are hoping to enter a junior under 13 team, a newly formed under 18 team and three adult teams.
The Sussex league tournaments are an essential part of our clubs progression and development and it means so much to the players representing a football team competing against other clubs.
To this end our club would also like to donate £100.00 to assist with the running costs of the league next season”
