A new Junior Disability football team celebrated being awarded funds through Sport England’s Small Grants Scheme by having its official launch during half time of the Burton Albion v Southend United match at the weekend.
Able Too Albion, which is part of Burton Albion Community Trust and builds on the football sessions ran through East Staffordshire Borough Council's sports development team, welcomed sponsors and guests to the match on Saturday along with the players from the team to showcase their skills in front of the Pirelli Stadium audience.
Working in partnership with Able Too United, the adult disability football club, East Staffordshire Borough Council, Staffordshire FA and Sport England, Able Too Albion offers football sessions to children between the ages of 8-16 with disabilities and additional needs across Burton and East Staffordshire.
Andy Taylor, Community Development Manager at BACT said "We are very grateful to Sport England for the funding support which will allow the Junior Disability Club to work with partners and offer football opportunities for children across East Staffordshire, this is a fully inclusive club and hope that a wide range of children will access the programme"
