SSG Celestials Starts Soon

New Football Club for Children with SEN | SUN 27 OCT

A new and inclusive football club is about to start in the Bedford area; here’s why you should get involved and spread the word now.

SSG Celestials is an exciting new football club for children with SEN and those not involved in grassroots football currently, to play and enjoy the beautiful game. Almost 1 million children have some form of disability in the UK and we are passionate about supporting clubs and organisation to engage these children in the game we all love. 

SSG are now doing just that with a fun weekly session where children can have a football club to call their own as well as a chance to make new friends outside the school environment.

Our excitement is extended in that along side this we will establishing the first youth football club purely for young people with special educational needs and abilities SSG Celestials FC.

Josh Spavins (FDO at Beds FA) said: “this is an amazing piece of development work where so many SEN children will benefit. Youth ability football is a truly magic spectacle and we cannot wait to see the likes of Woburn & Wavendon, Shefford Saints, Stotfold DC and Crawley Green Youth coming together. SSG are creating a much-needed community initiative and we believe this is going to be special!”
