Join The 1066 Specials Supporters Club

Become a Friend of the 1066 Specials by joining The Specials Supporters Club

Help sustain the Future of “The most inspirational and aspiring football club in Sussex” for just £10 a year.

Why Support the 1066 Specials?

The 1066 Specials football club was founded in 2003 and has provided coaching to over 250 young people, with special needs, since its formation. We are accredited with the FA Charter standard and were honoured by Her Majesty with the Queen’s Voluntary Service Award in 2013. We are not specific about the nature of disability that we cater for and it is  our  mission to provide opportunities for all our players to progress  within the  National Game.

Coaching sessions are themed to give an interesting and stimulating experience to the participants. The friendly ethos of the club encourages confidence, self esteem, co-ordination, and the honing of social skills. It also produces darn good footballers!

Parents, guardians and carers are welcomed and encouraged to attend training and participate fully in the club’s activities.

The 1066 Specials is a 100% voluntary organisation. The coaches, officers and committee give their time willingly and  all volunteers are  welcomed and valued.1066 Specials Team Photo

This special club harbours great aspirations and is respected, in both Sussex and Kent Disability football  communities, for their spirit and sportsmanship. From modest beginnings we now boast four adult teams as well as two junior sides. We continue to grow as do our costs. It is vital that we raise sufficient finance  annually. We have to provide for on-going commitments such as  venue hire, travel  expenses, renewal of kit and equipment. We also finance opportunities for players and coaches to achieve qualifications that will maintain the high standards of the Club as well as  enriching  CV’s.

Inevitably, expenses will continue to spiral  and  without  your valuable support, this wonderful football team could be put at risk. The 1066 Specials are too important to lose!
