Living with a disability does not mean you can’t play football.

Thanks to a series of sessions, people are able to show off their skills and develop the talent.

Community coach Michelle Marshall said: “I’m usually out and about on the road to lead the Disability Football Development Fund programme.

“This is a national FA programme delivering sessions for schools, colleges and other organisations.

“In a six-month period we’ve had more than 100 participants in the first phase.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for people who have never played before to get involved in the game and regularly access these sessions.

“As well as the next phase of community sessions, we’re looking to hold a summer festival.

“Our sessions will look to generate teams for that area so we invite clubs to come down if they want to set up a PAN Disability football team.

“We engage with individuals with a wide range of disabilities.

“The Talent Identification Programme is another opportunity for them to develop.”
