The 1066 Specials Football Club gives people with special needs and disabilities the opportunity to play football and receive expert coaching. The club provides opportunities to play the sport in a fun and friendly environment. We accept players from five-years-old, right through to our adult sides. All coaching is by qualified coaches who are trained and have been screened for their suitability for working with young people.
We welcome parents and guardians to all training and competitions and value your support. We are keen to try and involve parents in the club, so please become involved if you are interested. You only have to ask one of the friendly faces you’ll find at any of our training sessions or pick up the phone. Training sessions currently take place on the first, second and last Saturday of every month and arrangements should be made for your child to travel to and from training and matches.
The 1066 Specials offer a wonderful environment where everyone can enjoy ‘the beautiful game’. Many of the players here have developed better social skills and had their confidence boosted due to their membership of the club. As well as improving their football abilities, members and their families form a strong bond and develop close friendships. This allows the club to have a real family atmosphere – and new members will always be given a warm welcome.
If you would like to talk to someone at the club about any aspect of the 1066 Specials, including your child’s involvement, please contact us.
We look forward to meeting you at some point in the future.
