The Park Football teams looking for new members

By Community Reporter Charlie Watts

A football club based at The Park Centre is looking for new members to join its teams. 

The Park FC has five ability teams for men and women with disabilities aged 16 plus. They train every Friday from 5-7pm. 

The teams cater for all abilities and levels – and are an opportunity for individuals with disabilities to play football in a supportive yet progressive environment.  

Chris ‘CJ’ Lewis (24) has played for one of the Park’s ability teams since he was 16. 

He says: “The club is friendly and it gives people the chance to make friends and meet new people. It has also given me confidence, and I think of my teammates as a family.” 

The club has just launched its new session for ladies aged 16 plus on Mondays from 5-6pm and is looking to attract more players, whether new to football or not.
