We are pleased to announce that the Luton Town FC Community Trust have taken over our Ability Counts Prem league.
The new-look and restructured division will be the first of its kind locally, ran by an organisation outside of the county FA. With the ambition to engage more players and the success of the Trust’s disability programme in recent years, the move will provide an exciting new opportunity for people unable to play in the current format.
Vicky Wilson (LTFC Community Trust) commented: “as a Trust, we are passionate about using football to promote inclusion and equality for people of all abilities within our community. This initiative is a great example of social inclusion in such a special and diverse town.”
Every Friday the Community Trust host their ‘Street League’ sessions at Beds FA AGP, for players to turn up and play against each other all evening. Once a month the session will now turn into the official Ability Counts Prem league shown on the FA’s Full-Time website. A trophy is up for grabs for the eventual champions, so why not get your team signed up now?
Josh Spavins (FDO at Beds FA) said: “as a County FA, we are extremely proud of our ability football. The Prem level has had a few adventures nationally over the years, but this is an exciting development for the future.
If you have not experienced ability football before, it is simply a chance to play competitive football and meet new people that have similar life experiences to yourself. Added to that will be the benefits of access to support and valuable workshops on things like mental health and employability. You’re going to get so much more than a football league.”
Every FRIDAY from 18:00 to 20:00
