On Wednesday 27th June Durham FA held an England Talent Day event at East Durham College, Peterlee. The event was run in partnership with the Foundation of Light and 14 players attended the event.
A range of different practices and match scenarios were organised and delivered for the players to take part in and all players were provided with information to ensure they continued to play the national game.
The England Talent Day is aimed at players with a disability from the age of 7 to 16 years old. To be eligible to participate players have one of the following impairments to be eligible;
- Cerebral Palsy
- Partially Sighted.
The aim of the day is to signpost those up the talent pathway to a regional talent hub to progress and if suitable to an England Squad.
