Northamptonshire County FA is offering any young person with a disability, or sensory impairment (Cerebral Palsy, partially sighted, hearing impaired, learning disability, amputee, blind, or deaf) under the age of 16 the opportunity to showcase their footballing talents at an England Talent Day event on Sunday 2 April.
The event, which is being held at Thomas Becket School in Northampton (NN3) between 11:00am and 1:00pm, will include a coaching session provided by coaches from Northampton Town Football in the Community.
Participants will be split into two groups (under-12s and under-16s) in which they'll be put through their paces in a warm up, fun skill based exercises to examine their techniques and then some matches to finish.
Following the session, players will be signposted to further playing opportunities based on their performances, ranging from local clubs to impairment specific regional training squads.
Each of these is a stepping stone on the England Talent Player Pathway, which can and has previously led to players from the county representing their country.
