• EVERY PLAYER COUNTS – 2,000 PLAYERS IN JUST 4 MONTHS!

    Last autumn, in partnership with the EFL Trust, we launched “Every Player Counts”, our national programme aimed at increasing the opportunities available for disabled people to play football.  The initiative is funding 25 of the EFL club community trusts up and down the country to run projects in their local area, targeting gaps in provision and creating new chances for disabled people of all ages to get involved in the beautiful game.

  • 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.
