Think you know your football?

Did you know, there are 17 national representative Para teams that you can get behind across the four Home Nation FAs in seven forms of impairment-specific football; Blind, Partially Sighted, Deaf, Cerebral Palsy, Powerchair, Learning Disability & Amputee.  

Bev Channlor - She’s one of our own

BT staff and 4-3-3 squad members Bev & her husband John are true ambassadors of the game, and stalwarts of grassroots football, firm believers that sport should be totally inclusive and open to everyone.

Covid has made Bev realise just how important football is to their family and they have started out on a journey to set up a disability team at their local club Spennymoor FC, in their next step to push inclusivity one step further. “I’m really looking forward to it,” John says. “It’s football for all and a great opportunity to bring more players onboard."
