As part of our ongoing dedication to fully inclusive community football, we at Hertford Town FC are happy to announce a new initiative to provide football to all in association with our friends at Mudlarks Community Gardens, Bengeo Tigers and Live A Little.
We’ll be hosting training sessions for adults with disabilities starting this very Saturday!
We will begin with 6 weekly training sessions on Saturdays at 10:30am to around noon in and around the stadium.
The first session will be Saturday 11th July, meeting at 10:30am at the clubhouse.
(Hertford Town FC, West Street, Hertford, SG13 8EZ.)
We’ll also be arranging a fully inclusive football festival on the main pitch before a first team match in either August or September dependent on the the way the fixtures fall once announced by the league authorities.
Reece Ives and ex-Blue Ray Tomkins will be taking the coaching sessions which will be free of charge as Hertford Town FC and Bengeo Tigers will cover all costs.
Because of the warm weather at this time of year, football boots are not strictly necessary but some form of trainers/runners will be required.
Everyone from Mudlarks and Live a Little are welcome to attend as well as any other adults that want to take part in inclusive football. The sessions will be very friendly and relaxed. All abilities are welcome. The most important thing is people get a bit of exercise and have some fun doing a team sport within a supportive environment.
You don’t need to book a place . . . just turn up and play! This initiative is open to both men and women, all are welcome and they do not have to attend all 6 sessions. Carers and relatives are also welcome to stay and watch whilst enjoying refreshments in the clubhouse.
Please spread the news and if you know someone who would be interested in taking part, feel free to send them a link to this article.
