A team of LFC Foundation youngsters headed to London last week for the annual Premier League and BT disability football festival.

Participants from LFC Foundation's Respect 4 All programme, pupils from its unified delivery school Clare Mount Specialist Sports College and youngsters from its SEN session at Prenton High joined over 200 young people for the inclusive event at Tottenham's training centre, Hotspur Way.

In celebration of another successful year of the Premier League/BT Disability Fund, the festival saw participants from 28 clubs from across the UK enjoy a range of sports, including football and volleyball, before putting their skills to the test in a competitive tournament.

Terri Ritchie, LFC Foundation's inclusion lead said: “Being part of the festival was such a fantastic experience for our young people and they have all thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

“They have picked up new skills, made friends and had the chance to take part in a competitive tournament.

“It’s been a great event which has really celebrated disability football and showcased the success of the Premier League and BT's programme.” 

The Premier League/BT Disability Fund is a national programme that works with professional clubs across the UK to create possibilities for disabled people through sport.
