Blackpool FC Community Trust participated the Lancashire FA Ability Counts League on Saturday at Playfootball.net in Preston.
We took both of our adult and junior PAN Ability teams to represent Blackpool FC Community Trust. PAN Ability is part of Blackpool FC Community Trust’s inclusion programme which provides opportunities for people who have a range of impairments including being deaf, cerebral palsy, limp deficiencies/amputations and visual impairment. The PAN Ability programme caters to people of all ages.
Saturday’s league opened up with the adult Blackpool FC Community Trust’s PAN Ability A team and B team playing each other in the Premier Division – with the A team coming out 2-0 winners.
The adult C team were up next and they played their opening fixture against Fleetwood Town which they comfortably won 6-1.
Following the PAN Ability adult teams, Blackpool FC Community Trust had two junior teams competing. Both teams proudly represented Blackpool FC Community Trust and won the majority of their games.
Blackpool FC Community Trust, Inclusion Officer, Owen Coyle praised the fantastic effort by all the participants from PAN Ability. Owen said, “It was a fantastic day. All the participants really enjoyed themselves and the football on display, was at a high standard. Well done to everyone.”
