Saints Foundation welcomed 27 teams to the launch of their brand new Pan-Disability Football League last month.

Following on from the successful pilot in July 2016, teams came along to Toynbee School in Eastleigh to participate in Hampshire’s first official Pan-Disability League.

This significant development for disability football in Hampshire saw over 200 players participate throughout the course of the day in the U12, U16 and adult leagues, showcasing a wealth of talent from individuals with a range of disabilities.

League fixtures will now run throughout January to May 2017 to ensure regular participation.

Phil Gough, whose son is a SaintsAbility participants, said: "Opportunities like this make a huge difference to the kids involved, including improving their fitness, enjoying the feeling of inclusion and having a great time playing a game they love”.

Saints Foundation will run further sets of fixtures between now and May 2017, with the aim to create non-playing roles within the league in future to allow for people to not only play football, but be a part of football.
