Beacon to host England Talent Day

Foundation of Light and Durham FA are giving disabled footballers the opportunity to showcase their skills in the hope of becoming future England internationals.

Each year, the Football Association holds England Talent Days across the country where players can access expert coaching with the goal of finding a team or identifying the next Three Lions stars.

The Durham FA event will take place on Tuesday 7th May, 10am-12pm at the Beacon of Light, Sunderland (SR5 1SN) for aged 7-11 years old and 12-16 years old with the following disabilities: Amputee, Blind, Deaf (male and female), Cerebral Palsy, Learning Disability and Partially Sighted.

The day will consist of a short welcome introduction, followed by a two-hour football session on the Beacon’s 4G Rooftop Football Barn which will include a series of drills and games delivered by specialist Coaches.

Following the Talent Day, players may then be selected and invited to join their respective impairment specific Regional Talent Hubs for the season.

If you wish to attend the England Talent Day, or know a player who may be suitable, please contact Andrea Fyall on 0191 3872928 (option 4 then option 7) or email andrea.fyall@durhamfa.com.

Foundation of Light offers a wide range of disability programmes to ensure young people and adults across the North-East can enjoy sport, an active lifestyle and build friendships.

Making Moves, the charity’s disability coaching team, deliver fun, exciting and challenging sessions and activities which help develop gross motor skills, balance and coordination as well as encouraging teamwork, communication and confidence.

Foundation of Light’s disability programmes and coaching are supported by leading sofa and carpet specialists ScS and the PL/BT Disability Fund.

To find out more about the Foundation’s Making Moves programme, visit our Disability Coaching page or call 0191 5634777.
