• ENGLAND PROGRAMME GETS OFF TO A FLYING START

  • SOUTH LONDON SPECIAL LEAGUE

    On a beautiful summer’s day at the end of July, a host of learning disabled participants gathered at Long Lane JFC in Kidbrooke, for the annual South London Special League Summer Fun Day.  SLSL works throughout the year to offer people with learning disabilities the chance to play competitive and structured sport.  Many people want to get involved in games that are meaningful and where there are winners and losers, with league points to be gained and trophies to be won.  There are limited openings for disabled people to take part in this kind of opportunity in any sport at grassroots level, but SLSL is helping to fill the gap.

  • BRENT SCHOOLS FA PRESENTATION EVENING

    Around 200 players, family and friends gathered at the Capital City Academy on 12th July for the annual Brent Schools FA presentation evening.  As ever, this was a great opportunity to recognise the progress made by all the borough’s representative age-group teams.  The occasion is also an important one to thank the coaches, organisers and parents who contribute so much time and effort into making it possible for the teams to play.
