Aylesbury United Football Club are running weekly football sessions for local children and adults with special needs or disabilities.

The sessions, provided free of charge, are run by FA Level 1 qualified coaches who have been CRB checked, first aid trained and have over 10 years’ experience in coaching football and with people with special needs.

Having now been going for two years, the sessions are fully inclusive with anyone and everyone welcome to go along or get in touch. There is also the opportunity to play for the club’s U12, U16 and adult teams in the BOBi League for those that are interested in doing so. Siblings, family and friends are all also welcome to go along.

Children and adults of any age are invited to attend, with disabilities including but not limited to: autism, down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, heart problems, hearing or visual impairment, traumatic brain injury, cystic fibrosis, learning difficulties and many many more.

Sessions are every Saturday from 9-10am at Ashmead Combined School. There is no need to book, just go along to a session, which are held outside, with suitable clothing, footwear and plenty of drink. If you have any questions and would like to get in touch, email juniors@aylesburyunitedfc.co.uk.
