FC United's Disability Team are off to St Georges Park!

FC United’s Disability Team are off to St Georges Park!In February our disability team progressed into the next round of the FA Peoples Cup! This round took place on Sunday 24th March in Sheffield.

Our lads won all 3 games meaning they progress into the final stages which will be played in May at St Georges Park. If the lads win the finals at St Georges Park they will be invited to the FA Cup final in which they will be awarded the FA Peoples Cup on Wembley’s pitch at half time.

Academy and Sport Development Manager, Tom Conroy said “This is a huge achievement for our disability team who are only in their second season of playing competitive fixtures! To have progressed into the semi finals was a huge achievement, but for the lads to now progress into the finals and experience playing at St Georges park is class! Its important to mention as well, that not only did this team of players perform on the pitch, but the officials and organizers of the tournament also mentioned how good their behavior and sportsmanship was off the pitch and how they had done their club proud!

All of the players are really looking forward to playing at St Georges Park and are confident that they will be lifting a trophy at Wembley!”
