Talent ID Programme

Northamptonshire FA offers 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.

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.
